If you have several different pets at home, have you ever noticed them behaving in similar ways after spending a considerable amount of time together? After years of living together, have you noticed your dog behaving like your cat, in ways uncommon to a dog? The probable answer is yes, you have! Well, I guess in this case, animals are not very different from animals. Like humans, animals also tend to adopt the behaviors of other animals species around them after some time.
A very adorable and endearing example of this is of Sven the Bull. Sven is described by his owner, Fredericks, as incredibly intelligent, who craves to be cuddled and caressed exactly the way he likes. He loves treats every now and then. Sven has adopted the mannerisms of the six other dogs he was raised with. Along with the dogs, he has a big family of other rescued animals that includes cats, goats, pigs, pigeons, chickens, and a parrot as well on 9 acres of land. Fredericks is a vet tech and a wildlife rehabber who has many animals.
Sven is not a dull bull; you won’t see him staying in the corner eating his food and sleeping and repeating the same boring routine every day. Many have the wrong assumption of bulls being aggressive and unfriendly, but that is not the reality. In Sven’s case especially, the reality is far from this assumption. Let’s look into Sven’s daily quirkiness!
What a cutie!
Sven is the most risk-seeking of all animals present there. To ensure the safety of the animals, they are not allowed inside the house because of the slippery floor. They can easily slip and hurt themselves accidentally. However, Sven does not budge. He takes every opportunity he sees to sneak into the house.
“Anytime the door is open longer than a few minutes, he will make a break for it,” Fredericks says. “Cows are super, super curious animals (worse than cats), and when he was a baby, he was sick for a few days and lived in my laundry room for a while, so he was used to being inside. He rarely makes it inside anymore because I make sure to lock the doorknob”.
Here’s a picture of Sven snuggling with a rug and a cat’s sleeping couch. How adorable!
Due to Sven’s habit of coming in every time the door is open, it is easier to predict when it is going to happen. Lucky for us, due to Sven being so predictable, Frederick caught it on camera and we get to see how Sven sweeps his way in.

Sven has his ways to sneak in, and Fredericks has his ways to entice Sven into leaving the house. In this situation, Sven’s love for treats works in Frederick’s favor and he uses treats to draw his attention elsewhere and slowly bring him outside the house.
“I usually laugh if he makes it inside and just grab some treats to bribe him back outside before any damage is done,” Fredericks says. “Cows are very food-motivated, so he normally walks right out for a cookie. He did get in a few months ago and made it all the way to my bedroom and woke me up.”
You can’t help but swoon over how smitten Sven is with Fredericks. Never thought bulls could be loving beings!
Even though Sven breaks the rules Fredericks has made for all the animals to ensure balance and safety for all, Sven still ends up breaking a few. While it may seem like an inconvenience, but because Fredericks adores Sven so much and loves him truly, it only adds to all the fun he has with her animals.
