Unlikely best friends, perhaps the cutest you will ever set eyes on

See also

A fancy "silkie" chicken named "Penny," and a special, two-legged Chihuahua named "Roo," are perhaps the most adorable best friends you will ever set eyes upon.

The unlikely duo spends their days together at the Duluth Animal Hospital, in Georgia, where their guardian works.

Penny and Roo became a world-wide, internet sensation after their incredibly adorable photos were published on BuzzFeed. Before they became famous, those familiar with the veterinary hospital were regularly treated to incredible photos of the pair which are frequently posted on the hospital's Facebook page.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Penny was rescued from an area veterinary school and Roo (think "Kanga") was brought to the Duluth Animal Hospital a year ago after a good Samaritan found him beneath some leaves.

Penny and Roo think nothing of their differences - instead, they seem to simply relish being alive and sharing each other's company.
