Meet Herman, a dove, and Lundy, a little Chihuahua, they have formed a very strong relationship without having anything in common. Both have special problems, the pigeon cannot fly due to neurological damage and Lundy cannot use his hind legs.
Herman and Lundy are animals rescued by The Mia Foundation, an organization dedicated to rescuing animals with birth defects and physical deformities. It was in that organization where they met, when Lundy arrived, the dove was already there for a year.
Herman was found at a car dealership, where he stayed for days, until they found out he couldn't fly. The pigeon wildlife rescuers said it was impossible for him to fly again and was going to be slaughtered, but Sue Rogers, the founder of The Mia Foundation, decided to take care of the pigeon.
Lundy was sent from South Carolina by his owners, the reason was because he had trouble using his hind legs. He is so small that he can even fit in a pocket, the founder of The Mia Foundation thinks the problem is due to his small spinal cord.
The puppy and the dove were destined to meet. While Sue Rogers attended to the needs of both animals, they began a very strong relationship. Sue was surprised to see that they both huddled together as if they had met before, it seemed they were family.
Their relationship may be unusual, but they didn't see things the same way, they found a new friend in each other. While in the same bed, they started a type of party where they both enjoyed their company and enjoyed snuggling in different ways.
People from many parts of the world felt tenderness when they saw the two animals and decided to send donations to the foundation. Now many people are interested in adopting both animals.
"I was impressed. Donations keep coming: the foundation raised $ 6,000 in two days. That's enough to cover the high cost of veterinary surgery that many of the rescued animals require," said Sue Rogers.
