This unlikely combination found a love for each other while they were at Duluth Animal Hospital.

Penny, the chicken was rescued from a laboratory, while Roo was found on the roadside.

“She was an experimental chicken in the program and she had run the course of the experiment, so that was it for her," Williams told the Gwinnett Daily Post. “I asked if I could have her instead of them doing anything with her. I brought her home."

And since then, they haven't stopped spending time with each other.

Stanley the sausage dog and Aayla the seal. This incredibly wholesome encounter happened at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Cornwall, England.

Stanley and Aayla instantly hit it off.

Aayla is one of the sanctuary's friendliest rescue seals, and she frequently makes friends with the four-legged visitors. While visiting with his owner, Stanley struck up the unlikely friendship, and the pair spent around twenty-minutes checking each other out and posing for photographs.

And Stanley isn't Aayla's first canine friend.

It turns out this seal is quite the socialite, and regularly makes friends with the dogs who pass through the sanctuary with their owners.

Here she is, saying hello to another pooch...

If only all of us were as sociable as Aayla.

This sea dog simply loves the land dogs...

I'd adopt Aayla any day!

But Aayla isn't the sanctuary's only sociable resident...
