CUTE VIDEO: Dog and deer play a game of tag


LAKEWOOD, FL (NBC News) — The chase is on! A cute video shows a rescue dog and a deer playing a cheerful game of tag. 

An unlikely friendship started this week when a rescue dog and a deer played a game of tag in a Lakewood, Florida resident’s backyard.  

The owner of the dog, Ethan Cole, watched as his dog ran back and forth along the fence with the deer on the other side.  

He says he was surprised to see them playing together, watching a few moments before pulling out his phone to video the encounter. 

The animals played for about two minutes before stopping, running at full speed the entire time.  

Cole’s dog, Ike, is a rescue that is now 2 years old and full of life.
