You won’t hear this cow say “moo” anytime soon.

California resident Shaylee Hubbs recently rescued a calf from a dairy farm and brought it home to the ranch where she lives. At the time, the little guy was thin, sick and could hardly suck on a milk bottle. But during his long road to recovery, Hubbs’ Great Dane, Leonidas took the calf in as on of his own and began fathering the animal.

“He would lick the little cow on the face and try to nudge him to stand up,” Hubbs told CountryLiving.com. “He would lay down with the sick little cow for hours just to keep him company. Leo, of course, was so bewildered at what the cow was trying to do and thought it was a fun game to play. The Great Dane and Holstein bull became the best of friends.​”

The calf started to grow so attached to its doggy dad that it attempted to nurse from him. Now named Goliath, the calf stares inside the home when separated from Leonidas, watching him lounge on the couch while fogging up the windows with its breath. It’s safe to say they’ve formed quite a bond:

But it looks like Leonidas is really starting to rub off on Goliath. Like, a lot. Hubbs recently left her door open by accident while feeding the other animals on her property, and here’s what was waiting for her when she returned:

Pretty dog-like, eh? Well Goliath also likes to munch on some Kibbles ‘n Bits, just like pop (don’t worry, this is not what the cow normally eats)

And we can’t forget chin scratches! No cow-dog would be complete without them!

Goliath even has his very own oversized dog house.

Now they just need to teach him how to shake a hoof, and his transformation will be complete.
