A beautiful story of unconditional love, loyalty, and companionship.

One day, a man entered the Rocket Dog Rescue in San Francisco in search of a dog to adopt. He quickly fell in love with a three-year-old pit bull named Merrill. When it was time to pick her up, the shelter had a small problem. Merrill would not leave her best friend behind.

Rocket Dog Rescue volunteers dedicate their time to saving unwanted and abused dogs from overcrowded shelters. Their mission is to prevent dogs from being euthanized. They regularly rescue dogs that have no one to be adopted. In 2014, the rescue hosted a sick pit bull and an older chihuahua. The two pups did not move away from each other.

Merrill and his friend Chihuahua, eight-year-old Taco, were brought to Rocket Dog Rescue together. The volunteers did not know anything about the owner of the dog but they knew that the two dogs were best friends. They were together all the time and if they ever broke up, they cried. Very quickly, the shelter really understood how deep their connection was.

Absolutely beautiful!! ❤️
Thanx Irene
