Right from the start, it was quite clear that Lundy, a puppy with special needs, was in dire need of a companion. Surprisingly, he found one in an unexpected location.
Lundy, born with a condition that hindered his mobility, found a new home at The Mia Foundation in New York. Dedicated to supporting animals with disabilities, the foundation became Lundy’s sanctuary. Here, he met Herman, a pigeon who could relate to Lundy’s experience of being different.
Herman and Lundy share more than just their residence at The Mia Foundation. Both animals arrived at the facility last year with physical limitations – Herman unable to fly due to injury or illness and Lundy being a puppy. Despite their differences, they both possess large hearts. Recently, caretakers at The Mia Foundation decided to place Herman and Lundy together in a cozy bed, seemingly an odd combination. However, the two animals embraced each other without hesitation, proving that their unique bond transcends physical limitations.
Herman and Lundy formed a newfound companionship as they bonded with one another. They savored a heartwarming snuggle session, relishing in the comfort of each other’s presence.
Herman, the older of the two, appears to understand precisely what Lundy needed. Despite both being taken in by The Mia Foundation due to their difficulties, the development of their friendship is a delightful outcome after everything they’ve gone through.
Undoubtedly, animals with special needs like Herman and Lundy will encounter more obstacles in life than others. However, their caretakers’ love and their bond with each other will ensure that they never face these challenges alone.
