This Pit Bull Wouldn't Leave The Shelter Without The Chihuahua He Was Protecting, So The Owner Adopted Both!

February 2, 2017

Merill the pit bull mix, 3, and Taco the chihuahua, 8, were both surrendered to a shelter in Australia. Merill arrived very ill and the vets performed life saving surgery.

Taco watched over Merill and never left her side even once during her recovery.

The shelter said "These two love each other more than any bonded pair we have ever seen. They cry when leave each other's side."

When a family came in wanting to take Merill home with them, they couldn't get her to budge. At least, not without her best buddy.

So her new family adopted him, too!
