It all happened in India, in a park where a certain monkey lived. Passersby and visitors would stop to watch him jump from one tree to another. However, one day the monkey created even more excitement.

Suddenly, he appeared with a new friend: a stray dog. It was a little puppy and the monkey adopted him as if he were his son. In fact, he looks for food for the puppy and won’t even eat until he makes sure that his “son” is well-fed.

When other stray dogs try to harm the poor puppy, the monkey defends him with his nails and teeth. There’s no doubt that he sees him as his own family. How could you deny it?

He holds him in his arms, walks him, won’t leave him for a minute and picks out lice and other parasites like any other primate mother does each day with his son. As for the puppy, he has no intention of separating from his “mother.” He knows that he will always be well-fed and cared for.

Those who have seen the sight describe the connection between them as the most caring thing in the world. The inhabitants of Erode, the town they live in, have taken it upon themselves to provide food for them both — something that will surely take some of the burden off of the kind monkey.

After all, not having to look for food for his “son” in addition to himself gives him more time to dedicate to the care and protection of his family. O nce again, animals are teaching us lessons about what selfless loyalty, friendship and love mean.

Other special friends

This is just a small example of the friendship that can bloom between different species. Animals do not get carried away by appearances, but rather by their hearts and their feelings.

Here are other examples of animals who became good friends despite their differences:

  • Juniper and Moose. The two main characters in this beautiful story of loyalty and friendship are a dog and a fox. Despite the myth that it would be impossible for them to get along, this story proves otherwise. The two were rescued by the same family and became brothers.
  • A cheetah and a dog. Ruuxa is a cheetah cub who was rejected by her mother and very depressed. So the caregivers decided that a new friend would be very beneficial for her. They chose a puppy, and a friendship blossomed.
  • A duck and dog. A depressed dog is cured by a duck who suddenly appeared in his garden. They’re two peas in a pod.
  • A blind dog and his guide. A blind dog fortunately strikes up a beautiful friendship with his guide dog. They’re inseparable, even when they sleep. How touching!
