Abandoned Puppy And Baby Cow Form An Inseparable Bond To Overcome Their Sad Pasts

August 14, 2016

Juliana Castañeda, founder and director of Juliana's Animal Sanctuary in Colombia, came across four puppies in the woods one day.

She took them in, and on a trip to the U.S., managed to find forever homes for three of the four puppies.

But one puppy, named Sri Ram, was left behind. He was lonely. Castañeda moved him to the area where the older dogs were kept in the hopes that he would find someone to bond with.

Instead, Sri Ram met Bernie.

Bernie was a male calf born on a dairy farm. Male calves are typically slaughtered for veal, but Bernie's owners wanted him to have a happier fate, and so sent him to live at the sanctuary.

According to Castañeda, it was love at first sight.

Today, the pair are nearly inseparable, playing in the grass together for hours at a time.

And when they're tired out from a day of playing, they curl up for a nap together.

"Bernie thinks he is a big dog and Sri Ram thinks Bernie is a big dog," she says.

Best of all, Bernie and Sri Ram will be able to grow up and grow old together.

They'll spend the rest of their lives at the sanctuary with Castañeda, her family, and the horse, pig, quail, pigeon, three rabbits, seven chickens, two turtles, 13 cats, and 35 dogs that call the sanctuary home.
