Last update: 30 August, 2021

Donkeys are peaceful animals that can be easily tamed on a farm. This was evidenced by an adorable video that an Internet user shared on Facebook to show the first reactions of her newborn donkey.

The friendly animal was in its first days of life and the owner decided to let it play in the grass so that it could begin to get to know its home. However, its behavior exceeded all expectations.

The newborn donkey went out to look for the woman, wanted to play, and expressed all its love and didn’t want to stop for a moment! However, what attracted the most attention was that its behavior was similar to that of a dog.

Why? Because it began to wag its tail and jump on its owner so that they would stroke it like they would a puppy! In addition to this, it permanently followed its owner’s steps, just as dogs are prone to do.

The first explanation the woman found was that the donkey noticed the behavior of the dogs in the house and wanted to act like them. As a result, the story had a great reception on social networks.

Here’s the charming video that internet users have fallen in love with.
