We often hear that birds of a feather flock together, but then again, not all birds of a feather are the same bird. When you look at the two-legged chihuahua and the chicken in the story below, you might think that they are about as different as night and day. As it turns out, however, they were both rescued by Alicia Williams and they have become fantastic friends.
When they found Roo the Chihuahua, the puppy was freezing cold in a ditch. They think that a backyard breeder had abandoned the dog because he didn’t have front legs when he was born.
Penny the chicken was also rescued. As an “experimental chicken,” Penny was abandoned after the experiment was complete. More than likely, she would have been euthanized but Alicia brought her home after getting permission to do so.
Alicia works at the Duluth Animal Hospital in Georgia and these “odd bedfellows” often hang out with each other. The people at the hospital created this video and uploaded it to YouTube. It gives you the opportunity of seeing them as good friends.
These 2 have some wonderful adventures, and they even hang out when napping to keep warm.
Since the story broke, Penny has passed away. She managed to leave behind a beautiful story before she did so.
Before dying, Penny had a chick named Pippa and she is good friends with Roo as well.
