Penny & Roo: a story of an unlikely friendship between a rescued Chihuahua and Chicken

Who can resist these two cute balls of fur? Meet Penny, the chicken and Roo the Chihuahua  - defying any animal kingdom preconceptions us humans might have.

Abandoned in a ditch and previously rescued from a testing facility respectively, (flashbacks from Legally Blond 2 anyone?) these two have since become the best of friends. Not only do they enjoy each other’s company but a happy mother and new home.
