Is this the most adorable animal friendship you have ever seen?
Meet Penny and Roo – a chicken and Chihuahua duo rescued by Duluth Animal Hospital in Georgia, US, who have become inseparable.
Roo was born without forelegs but found a new lease of life when vets gave him a custom-made doggy wheelchair in June last year.
On the animal hospital’s Facebook page staff said in June: “Roo took his very first steps in his new wheelchair today! It's going to be a process, learning how to manoeuvre and balance, but it marks the opening of a door to freedom for him. We're so excited!!”
Penny is an orphaned Silkie chicken – a breed named for its fluffy feathers which feel like silk.
The pair love to hang out and play in the animal hospital’s reception – now their home – much to the delight of staff and visitors alike.
At the end of January, Penny and Roo played in the snow together for the first time.
