Black dog 'babysits' kid in cute video

Meanwhile, Yen.com.gh previously reported that a black dog had 'babysat' a kid.

In a video that has gone viral on Twitter, a cute black dog could be seen performing good babysitting functions as it entertained a little baby.

The canine beauty mimicked the child on his fours and it stooped to the baby's height, almost kneeling in front of him.

Whenever the kid tried reaching out to the dog by touching its face, it would gallop to the side to avoid contact with the toddler while releasing harmless cute barks.

As a way to tickle the baby, the dog would lap at his face. Every time the animal did that, the baby let out a loud laugh.
