Meet Idgie a two year old Dachshund who befriended a quadriplegic cat named Ruth.
Both of them were abandoned along a roadside back in October, they were found in a box outside of a Central Florida home.
When someone approaches Idgie barks or growls in protection of Ruth. If she gets taken away he gets fearful and worried. They have been taken in and adopted by Hollywood Houndz Boutique & Spa in Lake Mary, since then they have become like stars.
"Ruth is a very happy girl. She crawls to her food bowl and uses her litter box. She is very playful and loves playing with Idgie or whatever toy is available. She doesn't think there is anything wrong. We should all be this happy!!" Project Paw, which is raising money for Ruth's treatment, wrote on their Facebook wall last week.
Project Paws is currently taking donations on behalf of Ruth to provide medical procedures for her~ To learn more please visit them~ https://www.facebook.com/ProjectPawsFL
