24 Adorable Photos Of Protective Pets Guarding Children

by Damjan

Pets and babies. This is such a wonderful category that combines the cutest stuff that you can find anywhere in the world. But it's not just cute. There is so much more in their relationship, and cameras can't really capture it in full.

Dogs are loving creatures, and they can't hide their feelings. When you combine those strong feelings with a natural protective instinct, you get the best guardian that any child could ever have. And it's not just a phrase - animals can't lie. When they look like they love someone, they really do. And that's the reason we love them so much. They are true friends.

Dani Fernandez asked people to share pictures of these beautiful relationships, and the photos came pouring in. We know that these babies will have a wonderful childhood with their best friends and guardians around.
