You’ve Heard Of A Man & His Dog But Meet A Man & His Deer

A young, adorable deer decided to visit an old friend who just happens to be famous country singer Travis Tritt. Though the deer is now growing into an independent buck, “Oakley” as the couple named him – once needed a little help to learn how to care for himself.

Thankfully, country singer and songwriter, Travis Tritt and his wife, Theresa, found the poor abandoned deer near his 45-acre home in Georgia and vowed to nurse him back to health.

As a young fawn, the deer stumbled onto Tritt’s patio and needed special care. The couple rose to the occasion as they didn’t think it was going to be able to survive on its own in the wild.

“This is Oakley,” Tritt’s Twitter post read. “He was an orphaned deer that my wife bottle raised as a baby.”

“I had not seen him in years until he snuck up behind me as I was walking my property tonight,” the post continued. “He obviously remembered me and knew I wasn’t a threat. Nature is amazing!”

In the video, a timid Oakley can be seen receiving love from Tritt.

“That’s a good boy,” Tritt says. “You’re just a baby, aren’t you?”

Oakley continued to show that he remembered their love and care for him by allowing Tritt to pet him. The young buck even licked Tritt’s arm with affection. It was clear the two share a special bond.

Oakley first showed up on Tritt’s porch in August 2021.

Tritt said in a previous Instagram post, “This little guy was hanging with me while I had my morning coffee today. My wife named him Oakley. So cute!”

Over a year later, It’s clear that Oakley still remembers the kind humans who saved him. What a beautiful way to say thank you and see the bond between a man and an animal.
