When Penny, a Silkie Chicken, was just 9 weeks old, she was rescued from a tough life as an experimental testing subject. Instead of being disposed of when her usefulness to the experiments was over, she began a new life as a spoiled house chicken.

But, Penny would sometimes become lonely at home alone during the day, so her new mom began bringing her to work at the Duluth Animal Hospital in Georgia where she quickly became friends with the entire staff, the hospital’s clients, and even the animals being cared for there.

When Roo, a tiny Chihuahua born without his two front legs and a hole in his skull that never closed, was found freezing to death in a ditch, he was brought to Duluth Animal Hospital for treatment. That’s where little Roo and Penny Chicken met for the very first time.

The unlikely pair became fast friends and snuggle buddies. They are inseparable. And, since Roo was given a custom made wheelchair, the pair are also now unstoppable!

Penny Chicken and Roo are proof that you don’t have to be perfect for your love to be.

    All Chihuahuas have an open fontanelle in their skulls, a hole in the middle of its head that never closes.

    What a beautiful story, that 1 person took a chicken with love to a dog with love. What God has done and will do for you, them and also your family. Too bad humans don’t respond this way!!! May all be blessed.

    This is the most touching and loving story of how two opposites attract. Good job to the rescue staff for giving both of these amazing animals a second chance on life.
