We all know that dogs are man's best friend -- but apparently, they can be each other's best friends, too.

Chicky, a 6-year-old chow chow, and Goofy, a 6-year-old terrier, weren't doing well when they were both surrendered at Carson Animal Care Center in Los Angeles by their owner, who could no longer care for them.

The two pals, placed in separate kennels, initially refused to eat or even move in their new lodging.

When the concerned staff and volunteers realized that the pups needed each other for support, they quickly placed them in the same kennel.

Naturally, their behavior changed after that.

Even better? Katy DePasquale of New York took notice of their sob story online, and ended up working with local rescue Bark Party to bring the two furry friends home and help them get the medical attention they need.

There you have it folks, fairy tale endings actually do exist!
