'Walking Dead' Star Adopts Donkey And Emu That Fell In Love So They Could Stay Together
December 7, 2018
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, best known for his role as Negan on "The Walking Dead", adopted an inseparable - and unlikely - animal couple from a North Carolina animal rescue group.

A male donkey named Jack and a female emu named Diane were brought to Carolina Waterfowl Rescue from Kershaw, South Carolina, when their owner vanished.
The emu and the donkey had been consoling one another, "possibly for years, when the owner suddenly vanished," Carolina Waterfowl Rescue founder Jennifer Gordon said.

"They like to cuddle and even sleep together… Where one goes, the other one follows," Gordon said.
"We can't separate them, so we need someone who is willing to adopt both a donkey and an emu. That may not be easy. We determined they were bonded when we tried to separate them. Also, Jack attacked another donkey who got near Diane. He is very protective of her."
Their story found its way to Jeffrey Dean Morgan through social media, who decided to adopt them both.
#jackanddiane were safely delivered to their new home, and of course we took a moment to get some pics with the man himself! Thank you so much to @jeffreydeanmorgan for giving Jack and Diane their beautiful new home, and for being such a cool laid back person! ♥️ (Ps — peep his Carolina Waterfowl hat!! 😉)
Morgan has been posting updates on social media to let followers of the story stay updated on Jack and Diane's progress.
Love is an amazing thing.
