Penny (left) and Roo (right)*
The newest pair of adorable animal amigos comes to us from Duluth, Georgia, and it truly does not get any more heart-warming than this: a two-legged Chihuahua named Roo and a silkie chicken named Penny (yes, that cotton ball with a beak is actually a chicken), are best friends.
Penny in a pigeon hole*
Before her rescue, Penny had outlived her usefulness as an experimental chicken in a lab, and was going to be put down. However, thanks to the efforts of Alicia Williams, a worker at the Duluth Animal Hospital, this powder puff bird was saved and given the opportunity to make a friendship of a lifetime.

Roo, who was found by the side of the road, is believed to have been a cast aside product of puppy mill breeding, abandoned because of his deformity. And while this dog may be down two legs, he is doing just fine in the friend department thanks to Alicia Williams and her chicken Penny.
