Blind Calf And Rescue Pit Bull Become Best Friends At Animal Centre
Sometimes the most unlikely friendships are the greatest ones, and this has never been truer than in the case of Heaven and Sweetpea.
The two-month-old blind calf and rescue pit bull have become best of pals since Heaven the cow arrived at the Saving Grace Animal Society in Alberta, Canada.
The calf, rescued from a dairy farm, was a first too scared to mingle with the rest of the farm animal and instead lived in a small pen in the back garden.
Erin Deems, the animal rescue's executive director, said that the Sweetpea, who was rescued from an underground dog fighting ring, immediately made Heaven feel at home.
"They took to each other and immediately bonded," Erin told CBC News.
"Sweetpea took to her right away and showed her the ropes, as she often does with dogs that we bring in that need extra medical attention," Erin explained. "She just kind of latches onto them and kind of shows them the way."
Apparently, the pair are now inseparable and one of their favourite hobbies is sunbathing. Too cute.
"They really love to sunbathe," Erin said, adding: "Sweetpea really enjoys grooming Heaven so she's always licking her face and cleaning her up as well as she can. They just really enjoy each other's company."
The pair have been melting hearts with their species-bending friendship ever since they arrived.
"Love knows no species boundaries," Erin said. "When two animals can bond like that, it's pretty heartwarming."
And it seems it'll be a happy ending for the duo, who will be staying at the shelter for the rest of their lives.
"They're both going to live out the rest of their days at their sanctuary so they can continue their friendship for as long as they see fit," Erin said.
