We Are Absolutely In Love With These Furry Best Friends

By Renee Colvert

This week, we fell in love with a Reddit story about a chihuahua and a pit bull who became unlikely best friends.

These buddies are named Merill and Taco. Merill is the 3-year-old pit bull mix and Taco is an 8-year-old Chihuahua.

According to the Rocket Dog Rescue website, Merill was a pretty sick pup when she and Taco were first surrendered to the shelter. Luckily, veterinarians were able to perform life-saving surgery, and vet techs report that little Taco never once left Merill's side during recovery.

The rescue claims that "these two love each other more than any bonded pair the shelter has ever seen." They play together, eat meals together, snooze together, and if they're separated they cry until they're reunited.

Reddit commenters noted that this story shares the heartwarming plot of the movie Angels in the Outfield "when Joseph Gordon-Levitt said no to being adopted by Danny Glover because his best friend J.P. was gonna be left there all alone. Then Danny Glover adopts both of them."

We're thrilled to report Merill and Taco have been adopted together. Watch their very own movie happy ending here:
