Our German Shepherd saves our kitten

We recently adopted a ginger kitten called Jasper and after having him inside for six weeks decided it was time for him to venture out and get used to the surroundings of his new home. Our 4 year old German Shepherd called Basil took an instant liking to our kitten and became his guardian angel and when Jasper decided to walk around the edge of our pool, our Basil was quick to nudge him away from the pool and now every time we let out Jasper, our German Shepherd is by his side and follows him around the back yard making sure he doesn't go anywhere near our pool.
