But the sweet pup proved them wrong.

He also gets excited when he sees rabbits and squirrels, but he doesn’t chase them away.

Corbin gets super excited when his family brings home a new litter of foster kittens.

“When we have new kittens he’ll run into the room and look for them,” Karen shared. “If he sees one that is standing still, he’ll nudge it with his nose.”

The younger kittens usually don’t know enough yet to be scared of Corbin, so they easily become friends with him.

Older kittens, meanwhile, will oftentimes run away from him. When this happens, Corbin knows to be patient and wait for them to feel safe.

Eventually, the kittens grow curious about him and start to approach him.

Karen said, “I’m always impressed with his restraint. He lies still and they will come and sniff his paws, or play with his tail. Before long they realize that he’s gentle and the friendship begins.”
