Family Adopts Pit Bull But She Won’t Leave Without Tiny Best Friend

1. An Unexpected Pair

In October 2014, a female pit bull terrier called Merrill and a male Chihuahua named Taco were handed over by their owner to Rocket Dog Rescue, an animal shelter in San Francisco, California. Not much was known about why they were there, but the staff quickly noticed something special.

The two dogs wouldn’t leave each other’s side, so the volunteers at the animal rescue organization hoped to find someone to rescue the pooches together. Sadly, this proved to be more difficult than expected. After spending their lives together, it seemed that Merrill and Taco might have to be separated.
