This dog looks like it's angling for a babysitting award.

 Though Eteo the Belgian Malinois has been disciplined by guard dog training service Protection Dogs Plus, the canine has learned to do a little more than protect a person. According to Protection Dogs Plus, Eteo was taught to double as a kid-friendly companion, too.

Just watch the footage, posted to YouTube on Feb. 21, showing how Eteo gently pushes 3-year-old Aden in a toy car along the water in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

The Malinois is recognized in the United States under the name Belgian Malinois. Its name is the French word for Mechlinian, which in Dutch is either Mechelse herdershond or Mechelse scheper (both meaning: shepherd dog from Mechelen) or Mechelaar (one from Mechelen).

The breed is used as a working dog for tasks including detection of odors such as explosives, accelerants (for arson investigation), and narcotics; tracking of humans for suspect apprehension in police work; and search and rescue missions. The U.S. Secret Service uses the breed to guard the grounds of the White House.
