Beryl the Brahman thinks she’s a dog, but no one is going to correct her anytime soon! This unusual but adorable 8-month-old Brahman gave her owners a shock when they came home from an errand to find her snuggled up in their living room.
Her owner Sally Webster told The Dodo “She just likes to try and get in when she sees an open door. She has an amazing memory and is very smart, so she knows where the calf milk lives in the laundry. The day she was caught in the lounge took me by surprise. I really didn’t expect to see her making herself comfortable sitting on the carpet.”
Beryl isn’t usually allowed inside the house, but she’s got a mind of her own and isn’t afraid to go exploring. She adores affection and is particularly fond of a nice neck scratching or belly rub. Webster raised the young calf with a bottle after her mother died when she was only two-days-old. Once she was big enough, Beryl was allowed to graze outside on her own.
She’s also quite comfortable around her canine siblings Fred and Wilma. The puppies and the young calf are very close in age and have grown up together. “They still like to cuddle in with Beryl and give her lots of licks,” Webster said about the unlikely trio.
Beryl loves her family, no matter what species they are. Webster says “She knows mine and my husband’s voice. She can be outside grazing out of view and we can call out her name, and she will always bellow back, in a way to reply. Or come to the house.”
She has her very own Facebook page where Webster shares her adorable adventures and “cheeky” personality.
