Here’s a story that’s sure to brighten your day!
A rescue chicken has bonded with an abandoned dog in a touching act of friendship. Penny the silkie chicken was the subject of a lab experiment before she was rescued by a student named Penny Williams - as she’d reached the end of her ‘usefulness.’ Soon after, Williams came across young chihuahua pup Roo lying in a ditch, believed to be abandoned due to his deformed front legs.
The two have formed a heart-warming friendship, and have become an internet sensation thanks to the Facebook photos going up on the Animal Hospital website where Williams works.
Roo and Penny love spending time together - and thanks to Roo’s new cart, getting around is a breeze! The friends have been photographed exploring the snow, cuddling up to each other at bedtime and posing for Valentines Day and Christmas cards.
We know that chickens and dogs can co-exist peacefully - but we've never heard of them becoming so close!
