Mom checks on baby daughter only to find rescue dog sleeping with her

A video captured of a little girl and her dog sleeping soundly together proves how much dogs are really a part of the family.

In the video that has gone viral, mother Kristin Leigh Rhynehart goes to check on her baby daughter, only to find their family rescue dog, Raven, tugged under the covers next to her.

Raven is seen quickly popping his head up to see who is entering the room when she walks in, but as soon as he realizes it’s her, he lays his head back down to rest.

The video already has 200,000 views and Kristin Leigh Rhynehart, from Raleigh, North Carolina, who posted it, said it proves just what a true member of the family rescue dog Raven has become.

She wrote: “That moment you can’t find your dog and you even go outside looking for him… only to walk in the house and find him snuggled up in bed next to your toddler.”

She continues the post by saying, “people that say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ have never paid an adoption fee. Ten years ago I left a rescue with this little guy and I often wonder… who rescued who?”
