Herman the Pigeon and Lundy the Chihuahua.
via: FacebookThese 2 cuties found themselves forming a close friendship when they both ended up in the same dog bed, at The Mia Foundation.
Herman the bird arrived at the foundation several years ago.
via: FacebookHe was found outside a car dealership, sitting motionless. Sue Rodgers, who founded The Mia Foundation in 2012, received a call about the Pigeon. She was able to nurse Herman back to health, but he never regained the ability to fly.
Due to Herman's condition, he is now a permanent resident.
via: FacebookRogers regularly brings the bird outside, which is where Herman met Lundy. Lundy arrived at The Mia Foundation at just 4 weeks old. His owner was unable to care for the pup due to his special needs. Lundy showed signs of not being able to walk at an early age.
The two animals automatically gravitated towards each other.
via: FacebookRogers said: “The way they interacted was so cute." Herman even displayed some maternal behaviour towards Lundy. The pictures of the pair bonding have reached over seven-thousand likes, and nine-thousand shares on Facebook.
Rogers is hoping to help the little pup get a forever home.
via: FacebookRogers said: “He is only 17 ounces, so we will have to wait on the chair." Herman is a permanent resident, but hopefully, when Lundy is healthy enough, he will be able to go up for adoption. Rogers has dedicated her life to helping animals born with birth defects. She is a true hero.
