Adopted Pit Bull Refuses to Leave Shelter Without Best Friend

How could anyone NOT want to bring this matching set home?

4.26.16 - Pit Bull Refuses to Leave Shelter Without Chihuahua1


A pit bull in Australia who had been adopted couldn’t go home with her new family.  Try as they might, they couldn’t get her to budge.  At least, not without her Chihuahua best buddy.  So her new family adopted him, too!

Unfortunately, there really isn’t much else to this story.  But sometimes the best things are the simple things.

“This beautiful pit bull wouldn’t leave the pound without the frightened Chihuahua she had protected. So the new owner adopted them together,” Mornington Peninsula Dog Lovers wrote on Facebook (the post has since been removed).
