Pigеоn That ᴄᴀɴ’ᴛ FIy Fоrms InsеρarabIе Bоnd With AdоrabIе Chihuahua That ᴄᴀɴ’ᴛ WaIк

They say opposites attract and that there’s a lid for every pot. How about a feathered friend for every lonesome puppy?

Take Herman the pigeon and Lundy the Chihuahua puppy, one of the most unlikely duos you’ve ever seen.

Lundy can’t walk, and Herman can’t fly, but together they have formed an unbreakable bond.

Let me tell you bout my best friend

Herman and Lundy lived separate lives until they found each other at The Mia Foundation, a non-profit organization in Hilton, New York, dedicated to animals born with congenital disabilities. These two have fallen head over heels in true friendship.

Sue Rogers, the founder, shared on Facebook “I see a new friendship blooming.” More than 6 million views from around the world, 50,000 shares, and over $6,000 in donations later, their bond is stronger than ever.

The foundation took in Herman more than a year ago after he was found at a car dealership unable to move. Rogers agreed to take him in and worked with a wildlife rehabber to help Herman gain his strength. He can’t fly likely due to a brain injury or West Nile virus. Then around the end of 2019, little Lundy at only 4 weeks old was relinquished to the foundation since he was unable to walk.

Their unique friendship took off when they were each placed on the same dog bed. Rogers wasn’t sure how they’d react toward one another but was pleasantly surprised when they came together to cuddle.

Life of Snuggles and Cuddles

Initially, Rogers hoped to get Lundy strong enough to adopt into a home, but she decided that breaking up this puppy and pigeon pair is not going to happen. Lundy was recently diagnosed with kyphosis, and while there is no cure, he will receive the care he needs to continue to live a great life.

Herman and Lundy belong together and will remain at the foundation. They’ll continue to cuddle, snuggle, and help teach others that being different is A-OK.

Their story is even in a new book. Written by Todd Civin and illustrated by Jenna Walker-Cronk, a portion of the sales of “Lundy and Herman – The Differently-Abled Friendship Heard Round the World” will go to The Mia Foundation.

While Herman and Lundy may not be able to read the new book, they’re hoping others will so other special needs animals will get a second chance, just like they did.
