This was the beautiful moment a loving Labrador checked in on her human brother as he slept peacefully in bed.
Kendall, a Labrador mix, was allowed to sleep in her three-year-old brother's bedroom as a reward after the tot mastered potty training.
And what followed was absolutely adorable.
Footage captured the dog showing just how much she cares for Austin, as she got up just to check he was OK in the night, Wales Online reports.
Mum Emily Wright told TeamDogs : "We have been working on overnight potty training for my son and he has been dry for the last two weeks.
“When we started we said we would let Kendall sleep with him when he was dry without his pull-ups. He was so excited.
“He wanted her to curl up with him it was really sweet. We have a camera so we can check on him through the night.
“I didn’t hear a thing from them so the next morning I checked the activity on the camera and there were several times in the night where Kendall had got up to check on him and put her head on him and then she would go and lie back down.”
The family have always wanted their pets to bond with their child, so Emily was overjoyed when Kendall showed an interest in Austin right from her pregnancy.
The 31-year-old, from Texas, said: “We have had Kendall for five and a half years now. She is a Labrador mix and she’s about six or seven years old.
“We are obviously big animal lovers as we have two dogs and we had our dogs before we had our child. We always had this vision that our dogs would always get on with our children.
“I have pictures of Kendall with her paws on my belly when I was pregnant.
"She used to wake my son up in the morning by pushing her snout through the crib bars. She loves him just a much as he loves her.”
Although Kendall is an amazing family dog, she is also their greatest protector.
She added: “She’s really protective of us all. A few weeks ago we were out for a walk when two loose dogs tried to attack my other dog.
“Kendall helped to protect our other dog, Tiger, and fight off the two dogs.
“She was owner surrendered to a Golden Retriever rescue. She belonged to a family and it seems like she was loved at some point but she doesn’t seem to have any trauma or anxiety.
“She was our foster dog and we decided to adopt her. I was the foster coordinator at the time. She is the world’s best dog and I can’t believe that someone discarded her and didn’t want her.”
