Tiny Chihuahua And Giant Mastiff Become BFFs
Most dog owners think their pooch could be the next viral--and cutest--internet sensation. But I think they'll have a hard time beating this pair.

Digby the chihuahua was found shivering under a blanket between two dumpster bins in North London on Monday. The 5-week-old pup, weighs just 1.1 pounds, and was rescued by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The teacup sized pup was taken to the shelter where he found an unlikely companion. Nero, the Neopolitan Mastiff, weighs 132 pounds, is 120 times the size of Digby, and the two are best buds. The mastiff belongs to the center's manager, and employees say the massive canine has really "allowed Digby's personality to shine."

This isn't the first time an unlikely pair of animals have become best friends.

Another mismatched duo - Gerald the giraffe, and Zeberdee the zebra. The two live at the Tri-Hunt Game reserve in South Africa and have been inseparable since Zeberdee adopted the giraffe shortly after his birth.

And then there's Bubbles the African elephant and Bella the black lab. Despite their enormous size difference, the two have become great friends.

I guess its true what they say friends really do come in all shapes and sizes.
