Big dogs sometimes carry a reputation for being tough and scary. Depending on the breed in question, some people or animals may even be scared of them. But in reality, many are actually nice and make wonderful pets. They're able to get along with humans and other animals that come in all shapes and sizes.
That's the case for Ruby Jane, a five-year-old bloodhound owned by veterinary technician Stephanie Vice and her husband, Matthew. Ruby Jane has been fortunate enough to live with over 100 fostered animals over the years. But she's taken a particular liking to a little five-week-old American Wirehair kitten named Bondie. This was shown in a recent video upload by Stephanie of the dog comforting the kitten during the latter's bath.
"Is that your baby, Jane? Is that your baby you are you trying to pet?" Stephanie sweetly remarks on the Facebook video. "Say, 'It’s OK.' Say, 'It’s OK little cat — it’s just a bath.'"
The video was uploaded onto Facebook late last week and has become a viral sensation all across the Internet. This video has managed to reach upwards of almost nine million views, and it's sure to gain more and more over time. After all, who doesn't want to see a lovely dog comforting a small kitten during its bath?
The Vices revealed in a later interview that Bondie- along with his two siblings- came from a local SPCA no-kill shelter. The couple plans to foster them (as well as many more kittens) until they're ready to be put up for adoption. They're clearly proud of all the hard work they've put into giving cute pets loving homes- as well as Ruby Jane's bond with little Bondie.
"Ruby Jane is a very playful dog and is very good with all of the foster kittens. In particular, she has become very fond of Bodie since we brought him home. These three kittens make 107 rescue animals that I have fostered in the last five years," Stephanie revealed.
