To Comfort His Sick Best Friend, A Little Shelter Dog Lies On Top Of Him

Jefe and Jericho are fairly different types of dogs as a pair, yet despite their size and breed disparities, the two lovely pups are almost inseparable.

And they would prefer to keep it that way.

The two canines were surrendered to Emergency Animal Medical Technicians from the Arizona Humane Society by their former owner, and there was no question that their relationship was stronger than most. Unfortunately, one of the dogs was unwell.

“It was evident from the time they were rescued that Jefe and Jericho were closest friends,” Ashliegh Goebel, from the shelter, said in a statement to The Dodo. “When animal rescuers arrived to the site, they were startled to see Jericho, a sick, emaciated, tick-infested German shepherd, with a little Chihuahua enduringly resting on top of him.”

As rescuers hoisted Jericho to receive medical treatment, Jefe grew agitated, so the two went to the Humane Society’s trauma hospital together. “It was evident at that point that the two were strongly linked and that they would have to be adopted together,” Goebel explained.

Thankfully, Jericho’s condition has improved, but he’ll need to take valley fever medicine on a regular basis to be healthy and active.

Jefe has been by his BFF’s side throughout his rehab.

The Humane Society is hoping to find Jericho and Jefe a loving home now that he is getting well.

Who could possibly force these two apart, after all?
