They say a dog is a man’s best friend. Perhaps, this is because of their loyal and loving nature. This doesn’t just go towards human beings, but evidently, between each other as well. For two dogs who were staying together at the non-profit Rocket Dog Rescue in San Francisco, it was a story of inseparable circumstances.
Merrill, a three-year-old pit bull, and Taco, an eight-year-old chihuahua, formed a bond of great strength. According to their website, Rocket Dog Rescue says they are “dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned dogs from overcrowded animal shelters” in hopes of ensuring that each of them has loving homes, and they don’t end up being put down in a shelter. During their stay together, Merrill and Taco had an unbreakable friendship, and it wouldn’t be so easy to separate them.
When Merrill required a life-or-death surgery, the strength of their friendship was exemplified. Taco did not leave Merrill’s side for the entire surgery, being a loyal friend during a difficult time. If anyone even tried to separate them, they would begin crying until they could be together again.
Their friendship would be put to the test once again when a potential owner came in to have a look at Merrill. Having fallen in love with Merrill, the loyalty was proven as the puppy refused to leave Taco’s side. The new owner still came to pick up Merrill, but the two would not stop crying, and something had to be done.
To the fortune of these two loyal friends, the owner understood the situation and made an act of kindness. Both dogs would be taken home together that day and would have their wish granted to not have to be apart ever again.
Today, Merrill and Taco live happily together in their new owner’s home, with the loving family that they both deserve. The best friends can now live easy with the comfort of knowing that they can be by each other’s side for the rest of their lives now.
This wonderful story about two dogs and their unbreakable bond is a true example of the loyalty that a dog has. The heart wants what the heart wants, and for these two dogs, they can now live peacefully as one.
