Disney-Like Tale Of Friendship, Chihuahua And Pig Rescued In Arizona Are Best Friends
Animals are capable of forming deep and meaningful bonds, even with members of different species. They communicate and interact, showing love and care for one another.
Allowing animals to spend time together can create strong, positive relationships and provide comfort and companionship to both species. Animals are incredibly intuitive and will often know when another animal needs help or kindness.
For example, a domesticated dog may provide companionship to a wild duck and even protect it from harm, just like these two buddies. The Arizona Humane Society and Better Piggies Rescue have come together to give Timon and Pumbaa, a chihuahua, and a pig, respectively, a loving home.
It is not typical for a dog and a pig to live together, but the Arizona shelter was unable to provide the care Pumbaa needed. Luckily, Better Piggies Rescue stepped in to provide the two animals with a safe and secure home.
“Immediately, AHS staff saw just how strong of a bond these two have, especially when Pumbaa is kind enough to allow Timon to hitch a ride on his back from time to time,” AHS said.
On May 23, Better Piggies Rescue announced on their Facebook page that Timon and Pumbaa had found their permanent home. Pumbaa has even become an ambassador at the facility and has been seen making himself at home with the other pigs.
It is inspiring to see the Arizona Humane Society and Better Piggies Rescue coming together to ensure that these two friends live safe and happy lives. Read the full story below:

Better Piggies Rescue posted on social media, “he’s a natural greeter and can’t wait for everyone to meet him when we start up tours in September. Plus, he needs to be near his best friend, Timon, who we are working with to become a sanctuary dog.”
