Goliath the cow is making a very strong argument for the nurture vs. nature debate.

The 8-week old calf, who was rescued by 17-year-old Shaylee Hubbs, has grown so accustomed to Hubbs' Great Dane that he has actually tried nursing from the dog, who is also male, ABC News reports.

But that's not all — according to Hubbs, the young calf even eats dog food and loves getting rubbed like a puppy. And she's even caught him curled up on the couch just like a dog.

And it appears as though the feelings between Goliath and the Great Dane are mutual. In an interview with Country Living, Hubbs revealed that two-year-old Great Dane Leonidas loves to be around Goliath, adding "he would lick the little cow on the face and try to nudge him to stand up."

Regardless of whether he's a dog or a cow, we just can't get over Goliath's serious cuteness.
