Pigeon that can’t fly and puppy that can’t walk are best friends

The adorable pair began their friendship while roommates at The Mia Foundation a nonprofit rescue for animals with birth defects in Hilton N.Y

"I never imagined the pictures of Lundy and Herman would touch so many people!".

It was friendship at first sight between the pigeon and Chihuahua.

Sue Rogers, founder of the Rochester-based nonprofit animal rescue group the Mia Foundation, said she took in Herman the pigeon a little over a year ago when he was found unable to move in a auto dealership parking lot.

Lundy, an 8-week-old chihuahua who can't walk, and his pal Herman, a pigeon who can't fly, have been snuggling together at The Mia Foundation, a nonprofit shelter catering to animals with special needs and birth defects in upstate Hilton.

It was there that Lundy met someone else who knows what it's like to be different - a pigeon named Herman.

"I took Herman out of his playpen to give him some time out and I put him in a dog bed and then I had to tend to Lundy so I put Lundy in with him", Rogers told the news outlet.

Sue Rogers, who runs the organization with Gary Rogers, told the outlet she was tending to Herman and Lundy when she made a decision to put them both in a dog bed.

The rescue centre shared a series of photos of the animals loving up on each other last week, much to the delight of the internet.

The Facebook post has been shared nearly 50,000 times and has garnered nearly 20,000 comments and 22,000 reactions.

Lundy arrived at the foundation in January, weighing only six ounces. "They just looked really cute together so I took some pictures and posted them to Facebook and the next morning it was insane".

Herman was rescued from parking lot of a auto dealership, where he was spotted sitting unmoved for three whole days.

After wildlife specialists declared Herman untreatable, they prepared to euthanize him-that's when Sue Rogers stepped in to save him. "They started interacting immediately in a very cute way".

Rogers snapped some pictures of their cuddles. She's hopeful Lundy stays strong and survives.

Though it may just be one story of inter-species love, the shelter founder believes the world is in dire need of these kinds of stories.
