ADORABLE: Deer and dog play tag along fence in Lakewood Ranch

An unlikely and adorable friendship was caught on camera in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. 

Video captured by a homeowner shows his German Shepherd pup playing a friendly game of tag with a deer.

The dog and deer are seen running back and forth along the perimeter of the backyard along the fence line. 

The pup's owner says the dog was a rescue that was anxious and fearful at first, but now he seems to be one happy and playful pup.
