Best friends are hard to come by, but when you do find one, it’s a beautiful thing.

Merrill is a three-year-old pitbull with an eight-year-old chihuahua, Taco, as a best friend. They were surrendered together at the Rocket Dog Rescue in San Francisco.

Merrill needed lifesaving surgery shortly after arriving. The rescue workers were touched by how attentive Taco was while Merrill recovered. He never left her side.

During her recovery rescuers were floored by the attentive dedication of Taco. He stuck by Merrill’s side like a tiny nursemaid.

In fact, the two were always together and would cry for each other when they were separated.

Each time they made an attempt to separate the dogs, even for a short moment to feed or wash them, both dogs would whine and become anxious. After a while, it was heart wrenching for the volunteers to have to upset the dogs like this and they decided breaking the dogs apart was not possible.

When it was time for Merrill to be adopted, the bonded pair’s cries for each other left the rescue organization with only one obvious solution – they needed to be adopted together.

Soon enough, a family from San Jose saw the listing and had quickly fallen in love with Merrill and Taco’s story. So the family headed out to Jodi’s place so they could meet the two dogs. They instantly fell in love with them and knew they wanted to adopt them!
