So, let me tell you about Herman and Lundy, an unlikely pair that became the best of friends. Lundy is a Chihuahua puppy that can’t walk, and Herman is a Pigeon that can’t fly.
There is a place in New York called The Mia Foundation, and that is where the two met. The Mia Foundation rehabilitates animals with physical deformities and birth defects.
They’re also a non-profit organization, so be sure to check them out! What they do is amazing and life-saving.
Herman was found in a parking lot of a car dealership, the poor little guy had been sitting there unable to move for 3 days! He had neurological damage and couldn’t fly, so he just sat there.

Sue Rogers, the founder of The Mia Foundation stepped in when local wildlife rescuers wanted to euthanize him. Herman is still with her!
The Chihuahua puppy, Lundy, was brought in by his breeder because he could not use his hind legs. This is called swimmers syndrome and is likely due to a damaged spinal cord.
Sue decided to put the two boys together and see what happened. They immediately cuddled up together!
Thursday night I took Herman out of his playpen to give him some time out and I put him in a dog bed. Then I had to tend to Lundy so I put Lundy in with him. They just looked really cute together so I took some pictures and posted them to Facebook and the next morning it was crazy.Sue Rogers told WHEC TV in an interview
Posts of the unlikely pair went viral really quickly, I mean how can you resist this??
Just from a simple picture of a pigeon and a puppy being shared, we’ve already brought in over $6,000 in donations.Sue Rogers
