"Taking baby rhino Warren for a walk with the dogs," they wrote. "He comes running back when he hears his name called!"

Warren can be seen running quite a distance away from the rest of the group before hearing his name called, at which point he quickly comes to a stop and reverses his path to rejoin the orphanage worker and the dogs.

The video also shows Warren playfully interacting with the dogs and enjoying a quick snack from a container of milk.
