We all know that Golden Retrievers are not only a special breed of canines but are perhaps one of the gentlest and kindest species of animals on planet Earth, exuding unconditional love to their human companions. Yet at the same time they are predators, genetically programmed to chase smaller animals such as birds or rodents. After all, they are bred as gun dogs to retrieve shot waterfowl such as ducks and birds during hunting and shooting parties.

Meet this adorable Golden Retriever, named BOB, who lives with eight birds and a hamster in São Paulo, Brazil.

Bob has garnered lots of admirers on Instagram thanks to his human “owner” posting photos of him posing innocently and/or engaging peacefully with his bird and hamster pals.
