Will Your Next Pet Be A Goat Instead Of A Dog?

Picture a goat. Are you envisioning him cuddled up with you on the couch while you watch Netflix? Walking around the neighborhood with you on his leash? It may sound strange, but according to recent studies, a goat would make just as good a companion as a dog. Researchers from Queen Mary University of London stated that goats are capable of communicating with humans just like other domestic animals, and are even as loving and clever as dogs. The research also shows that goats are smarter than previously believed, and behave in similar ways to domesticated animals. For example, a goat might gaze into a human's eyes when struggling to complete a task. We've collected some awesome videos on this topic. Watch them now to learn more.
