Dog-rat BFFs take the Internet by storm

Rat & Dog, Hamster & Snake - Unlikely Animal Best Friends!

The Internet shows us that friendships know no race, color or even species.

Case in point, a dog-rat duo that has generated a lot of buzz lately -- much like Cooper and Olivia in the above video.

They even have their own Instagram page which reads, "Osiris is a 3-year-old Dutch Shepherd mix. Riff Ratt is a 3-month-old fancy rat. They live in Chicago and they're BFFs."
