Today’s story is extraordinary, and you will simply fall in love with the deer, the cat, the dog, and definitely the rescuer. They would’ve made such a beautiful family.

It all started when an outdoorsmen named Darius, was watching a family of deer in the wild. While watching them, he noticed that one fawns was having some trouble walking, due to its right front leg being injured. The fawn was helpless.  It was clear that the fawn was a newborn; its stomach had smears of fresh blood.


It was struggling to keep up with its family, and eventually it fell and was left behind. Darius was watching closely – with his camera on record.  Although he does not support keeping wild animals as pets, the deer’s position did not allow it to live in the wild.  He knew that it wouldn’t survive a day with that broken leg.

Darius already owned two pets, a dog and a cat, and when he decided to bring the fawn back to his house, the pets were confused, not sure about what to do. The cat seemed to be a bit jealous from the fawn’s bed, and the dog was trying to ignore it.


However, the fawn had no problems with other animals and was very playful.  On the first day, it slept on Darius’s bed. Darius did not forget about the fawn’s leg.  He used an oatmeal box as a splint to help it grow stronger. He researched and discovered that fawns need to be fed every four hours, so he did just that.

Soon enough, the fawn could walk properly, not only walk, but run too! It formed a special bond between one of the dogs, Mack, who absolutely adores it and never stops licking its face. Mack was the most helpful hence licking it cleaning.  He treated the fawn as his own pup; he always kept an eye on it, too.

The sad part came, when Darius realized that the fawn has fully recovered, and that they had to release it into the wild. At first, the fawn did not want to leave Darius’s side.  It kept coming back, but once it saw its mother, the fawn ran quickly to her, and was reunited with the family again.

Darius still sees the family every now and then, and he is absolutely proud of what he had done. It was a great experience, and although he wishes to keep the fawn, he knows that its real life belongs in the wild. I wish more people like Darius existed!
