This Rescue Dog Can’t Stop Doing Zoomies, Unless It’s “Babysitting Time”

This Rescue Dog Can’t Stop Doing Zoomies, Unless It’s “Babysitting Time”

Dogs are masters of intuition, and Pony is here to prove it! 

This amazing boi has been nothing but the biggest entertainment for his family over the years. After being saved from the shelter, he lives a brand-new life with his two favorite hoomans in the world – Ruchi and Zach.

He just loved doing zoomies around the house all the time until his momma became pregnant with a baby boi. To everyone’s surprise, Pony started transforming into the sweetest babysitter!

Pony has always been a special boi. He was adopted in 2014 from a New York City shelter, where he was placed after being found on the streets of Harlem.

At the time, his paws had been all burned from the pavement, and he weighed only 16 pounds. According to his caregivers, Pony likely escaped an illegal basement fighting ring, where he was severely mistreated.

When his momma finally found him, he soon transformed into the sweetest, zoomiest lovebug. His wild zoomies have always been his trademark. He just loves doing them at all times, and he definitely enjoyed being the family’s major entertainer.

However, all that was about to change when Ruchi announced her pregnancy. When he sensed that his mom was about to give birth to a baby, Pony suddenly became a brand-new pup.

In no time, Pony transformed into a calm dog who was ready to take care of a baby brother, like a real babysitter! 

He was always gentle around his mom, and then, when the baby finally arrived, Pony was completely unrecognizable.

“He watches over Amlan, his new little brother and protects him whenever he can. He loves running, he loves to zoom but now he’s cautious and guarded, and he makes sure Amlan’s safe before he does,” Ruchi told Power of Positivity.

Pony always made sure to be there for his baby brother. He protected him, sniffed him, and helped his momma entertain their little hooman. 

Even when he was about to get energetic, he always made sure to secure his brother first and then go play.

As time went by, Amlan and Pony became inseparable. They soon became best friends, and when Amlan finally started walking, the real fun began.

Pony was comfortable enough to get energized again, and now both of them have started doing zoomies around the house, and Pony just loves it! He was extremely thrilled to have “a partner in crime” in basically everything he did.

The two would “steal” snacks together, conspire together to make a little mess during playtime, and they even had their very own way of communicating.

Pony’s favorite thing, though, is traveling with Amlan and the family. Since he was adopted, he has always been a fan of hikes and road trips where he can enjoy endless walks and run free in the open space.

“Since he loved coming everywhere with us, we started taking him on road trips. We drove to North Carolina and hiked all over the mountains after just 3 months, and since then, because he loves doing it, he’s traveled to 49 states with us,” said Ruchi.

And, now he can do all that with Amlan! His baby boi is finally strong and big enough to accompany him outside, which makes Pony the happiest doggo in the world.

Once a great, intuitive babysitter, Pony’s now more than just a companion to his little hooman. He’s a big brother forever.
