Bouncy, playful and utterly adorable — there are few things cuter than a happy baby goat! Known for their curious natures and non-stop adventuring, these intelligent animals are becoming more and more popular, thanks in part to several goat rescues who are showcasing their funny, affectionate personalities on social media.
Here you can find the best of The Dodo’s goat stories — from heartwarming rescues to profiles of some of the funniest, happiest goats we know. Our favorite thing about them? Their playfulness! They’re great climbers — wild mountain goats can even scale sheer cliff faces — and they love to run and jump. Even newborn goats will do a “happy dance” as soon as they learn to run.

Goats are also known for their remarkable intelligence — even if they often use it to get into trouble. They love to explore everything they can, even if that means taking a bite of something they’re not supposed to or plotting an escape from their exercise pens.
Goats can make excellent pets for a prepared owner, and they’ll always bring a smile to your face with their antics. Thinking of adding a goat to your family? Check out a farm rescue near you. Many goats are saved each year from farms or livestock trucks, or are abandoned by their owners, and a rescue will be happy to match the right goat to your family. Just be prepared — while they’re adorable, they’re also known for being incredibly mischievous!
