26 Adorable Cow Photos That Prove They’re Just Big Softies

A dog is man’s best friend and this isn’t just a saying, it’s the truth. But if there’s another animal that comes close to the appearance, behavior and personality of a dog, it’s the mini cow. Remember the tiny adorable cows that we previously featured? These miniature cattle breeds can only grow to about 30 inches, making them only as big as large-sized dogs. But appearance isn’t the only thing that makes these tiny cows similar to dogs.

Just like dogs, these adorable cows also love to cuddle and play with their humans. They are friendly and gentle, making them ideal companions for children too. Although these miniature cattle breeds are typically farm animals, they can also make great household pets. This is because these cute cows are specifically bred and trained to socialize with humans. And that explains their affectionate and friendly characteristics.


Adorable Cows Make Affectionate Pets

However, a cow doesn’t have to be small to make a good pet. In fact, some people would even pet regular-sized cows. But unlike mini cows, average cows could only stay in farm pens. And we don’t recommend letting them stay inside your homes. You can, at least, play with them on the pasture grass and take them for walks around the farm. These adorable cows will surely appreciate getting some snuggles and kisses from you.

Not to mention, these adorable cows really get along well with other household pets. Their gentle and amiable nature allows them to make friends with other animals easily. So if you already own dogs or cats, a lovely cow would make a perfect addition to your family. Take a look at these cute photos of pet cows that will make you wish to have one for yourself.
