A loving Golden Retriever named Loryn takes her job on the farm very seriously. Her fur mom, Andrea is known to bring home babies of all kinds, and Loryn has made it her duty to help raise each one!

Loryn has always been interested in being around creatures of all kinds. No matter which animal Andrea has brought home to add to her family farm, Loryn always wants to be front row and center as they grow up. This was no different when Andrea adopted five baby goats to add to their clan, and Loryn could hardly wait to meet them.

From the moment Loryn locked eyes with her new goat friends, it was clear that this would be a friendship like no other. Being her usual lovable self, Loryn immediately jumped into a motherly role and began to guide them through each endeavor that came their way!

Loryn and her adopted goats were inseparable from the moment they met. Mia, Henry, Delilah, and Daisy Mae looked up to the doting Golden in everything they did and followed her around like ducklings following their mother.

Andrea was continuously amazed by the unshakable bond the unit formed as the days went on. Loryn watched the baby goats as they played, cuddled them as they slept at night, and even appeared to lead them around the family farm as if she was teaching them how to walk through life!

Though Loryn was not of the same species as her new adoptive children, it didn’t seem to matter. Each of their hearts were complete from the moment they met, and they would continue to be the rock in each other’s lives as they continued to grow.

Loryn’s baby goats have since grown into adults, but they still remain close! The aging of her goat litter has only opened the door to other creatures that need Loryn’s motherly love, and she has since helped to raise a number of other farm animals.

Loryn has helped to raise kittens, chicks, puppies, and even birds. There are no bounds to the love that she has to offer, and Andrea is continuously amazed by the immense compassion that Loryn gives to each baby that crosses her path.
