Dogs can form a strong friendship with mankind. But do you know they can also form strong bonds with other animals? Dogs are highly sociable creatures, and they can make wonderful friendship with any other animal species. A true friend will never leave you no matter what. He or she got your back and will never ever leave you.
Usually, we find friendship at the unlikeliest of places. This is the story of a dog who found a true friend in a cat. What we found so heartwarming is how their friendship started.
Idgie is a Dachshund that was abandoned by his owners. Being a smart dog, Idgie was devastated. He couldn’t understand why the people he called his family just left him. We can only imagine the pain and confusion the poor pup felt.
Meanwhile, Ruth is a paralyzed cat, and both found each other at the lowest point in their lives. When they were rescued, both were found in a neighboring driveway. They were rescued by the local animal control officers.
The two animals became inseparable. Nothing and no one can separate them. Their friendship became strong due to their pain and hurt. Ruth is Idgie’s emotional support, while Idgie is Ruth’s protector. Idgie is known to protect Ruth from other dogs, putting himself between Ruth and the perceived threat.

According to one of their adoptive mom, the friendship between the dog and the cat is special. She said their bond is just so strong they found it amazing and one of a kind.
Idgie shares everything with Ruth, and Ruth does the same with Idgie. This is what real friendship should be like.
Dogs are indeed incredible creatures. They don’t only form a strong friendship with humans but can also create relationships with other species. What a sweet dog Idgie is.
