Joanie Loves Chachi: A Best Friends Story (GALLERY)

(DOGS/ANIMAL FRIENDS/PICTURES OF ANIMALS) Is there any better love story than a beautiful friendship between two unlikely companions? A group of police officers in Savannah, Georgia found a stray pit bull wandering the streets with a Chihuahua in her mouth. The little dog had an extremely infected eye, so occasionally the pit bull would put her friend down to lick her wounded eye clean. Shortly after finding these two adorable friends wandering the streets alone, the officers took them to the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Animal Control Shelter (SCMAC), where the two were separated for a few days while the Chihuahua underwent emergency eye surgery. After their reunion, there was no denying that these two are best friends and deserve to spend the rest of their happy lives together. In fact, the shelter even named these pups “Joanie & Chachi” due to their close bond. According to the Joanie loves Chachi Facebook page, the shelter is still looking for their perfect forever home. Check out the gallery below to see exactly how much Joanie loves Chachi. — Global Animal
