Hi friends! Today we have a found a wholesome video of sweet dears. (Get it? Dears? Because they're deer…Okay you get it.) Boo is a little white fawn who was found by herself in a back yard. After being cared for throughout her babyhood it's time to be return to the wild! She and her friends get soooo adorably excited to return to their roots, watch them wag their tails and leap for joy. 

Sweet boo is a very cautious fawn, she makes sure not to be too trusting of her human caretaker. She slowly warms up a little, and enjoys spending time with the other fawns in the backyard. We loved watching boo grow and blossom into somewhat of a mother figure for the other fawns! The happiness she expresses when released into the wild absolutely made our day.

Abandoned Fawn Or Just Relaxing While Mom Run Errands (Video)

According to the National Wildlife Federation's blog, every springtime, they receive numerous calls and emails from concerned folks who believe they have discovered abandoned fawns.  'I found an abandoned fawn! Where can I take it? The answer is almost always the same: The fawn isn't abandoned and you should leave it right where it is.'

'Female deer hide their newborn fawns in tall grass or brush and move some distance away to feed to avoid drawing predators to their offspring. With the proliferation of deer in suburban areas, sometimes this happens right in our own yards. The fawn simply waits in hiding until its mother returns. Soon, the fawns will be strong enough to follow the does and run from predators, and they no longer need to spend hours alone in hiding.'

Wholesome Fawns Being Deer Friends With Other Animals

Tiny baby deer, is there anything more wholesome? They're gangly, their speedy, their adorable, and they have the cutest, purest, most heartwarming ability of making friends with other animals. Cats, dogs, bunnies, apparently fawns just like to cuddle and make friends. 

Unlikely animal friendships are some of our favorites. Any story of an animal from one species befriending an animal from another species has something quite special about it. But there's something about fawns being friends with other animals that is even more special still - perhaps it's the apparent innocence, perhaps it's just because baby animals are adorable. 

Regardless, get ready to have your heart flutter because these pictures are just too cute to handle.

Fawn Stranded In Lake Get's Rescued But It Gets Even Better

While enjoying a fun day out on the Folsom Lake, Kenny Croyle was with his wife and in-laws when they came across something that didn't look right.  

Croyle told FOX40, "Another boat had their flag up and we didn't really see anybody in the water. So we just slowed down just to be careful. Didn't know exactly what was going on."

The other boat had just rescued a fawn that was struggling to stay afloat in the deep part of the lake, far from shore. 

Croyle continued, "And they yelled at us and let us know there was another one. The mom, the doe, was heading for shore but she was quite a ways away."

That's when Croyle and his family came across the second fawn in the lake. The poor struggling fawn was confused and looking for its mom. Croyle said, "So, I put my life jacket on, jumped in after it and picked it up. As soon as I picked it up, it kind of went limp. It was very relieved I think, very tired."

Unsure if the fawn would survive, they wrapped the scared fawn in a towel and helped it calm down. 

When they got closer to shore, Croyle and his family spotted the mother on the hillside, looking down trying to find her babies. Both boats were able to safely reunite the fawns with their mother. 

Watch the incredible footage of the rescue below! Thank you to Croyle, his family, and the occupants of the other boat!

After months in the care of the California Wildlife Center in Malibu, California, five orphaned fawns enjoy their first moments back in the wild where they belong.

Orphaned fawns are prevented from seeing human faces and forms during their time in the rehabilitation setting. In keeping with that policy, this video was filmed from behind a camouflage blind in the woods, by a volunteer.
