Dogs are often referred to as perfect babysitters. Depending on the breed and training, our canine friends can be very gentle with babies and attentive to their needs.

One of such kid-friendly dog breeds is bullmastiff. Don't get fooled by their big stature, bullmastiffs are huge sweethearts. They are known as 'family' dogs, and can even get protective of their owners in case of danger. The best example of this is the Michalek family and their dog Brutus.

Best nanny in the world

The Michalek family got their bullmastiff Brutus in 2016. They like to refer to him as their first baby. That was, of course, before the couple had their human child Kayden a couple of months ago.

Bonnie Michalek says that Brutus sensed she was pregnant before she knew it herself.

Brutus knew I was pregnant before I did — he definitely sensed it before I knew.

The couple wasn't afraid of bringing a small baby into the house with such a big dog.

He’s always loved kids. Every time he’s heard kids outside laughing he gets excited.

And just as they expected, Brutus was instantly smitten by little Kayden. When the Michaleks brought the baby home, Brutus immediately rushed to meet his new brother and give him kisses.

Bonnie says Brutus hasn't let Kayden out of his sight ever since they met. Whenever the baby cries, Brutus rushes over with his brother's favorite toy, which the dog has learnt to understand.

The Michalek family can sleep soundly knowing that they have the best protector watching over them every day.

Why are dogs so perceptive of emotions?

It's no surprise, that whenever an owner stars to cry or displays a sad emotion, their dog rushes to comfort them. A group of researchers talk to many dog owners and gathered that their canine friends always sense if something is wrong. Their study says:

On the surface, it certainly seemed as if the dogs were demonstrating empathy.
