A very unlikely, yet extremely heartwarming friendship between a pigeon and a chihuahua has taken people by surprise. Everyone meets Herman and his special friend!
Herman is a rescue pigeon that can’t fly and Lundy is a 10-week-old chihuahua who can’t walk, and their special relationship won everyone’s hearts. The two adorable creatures met at the Mia Foundation – a non-profit in Rochester, New York, which rehabilitates animals with birth defects.
Herman is a resident at the rescue center for over a year. Back then, the little one was found in the car park, unable to fly or move. The wildlife rescuers said at the time he would stand a chance of survival, but Sue Rogers – the founder of The Mia Foundation, knew Herman would beat the odds. Unfortunately, he won’t be able to fly again, but that doesn’t stop the tiny creature to be such an adorable presence and the center, where he’d be a permanent resident.
Lundy on the other hand, was just 4-week-old when a breeder in South Carolina decided he’s useless, given his special needs, so the poor little soul ended up in the shelter. Thankfully, he arrived at Sue’s foundation, and here he found all the love and comfort he needed. And more than that, a special friend.
Sue’s post went absolutely viral with millions of people being absorbed by the adorable duo. More than that, thanks to the popularity Herman and Lundy enjoyed a lot of kind-hearted people made donations for the rescue center.
“Just from a simple picture of a pigeon and a puppy being shared, we’ve already brought in over $6,000 in donations,” Sue said. ” think the world needs good stories and when you have two species that basically fall in love, it can only touch hearts.”
