An unlikely duo has become a celebrity of sorts because of the unique bond that they share. They have become a huge attraction to local residents and tourists, and their photos have been a hit worldwide. The two have also been an inspiration as they have shown that love and compassion can be given regardless of how large the differences are.
When a monkey in Erode, India saved and adopted a stray puppy, people were amazed at the bond that they were able to make with each other. It is a story that will melt even the toughest of hearts.
A homeless rhesus macaque quickly gained popularity when she was seen downtown carrying a puppy with her. According to the locals, the monkey saved the stay from a pack of savage street dogs and then took care of him. From then on, her motherly instincts took over, and she assumed the role of being his protector and provider.
Inspired by the monkey’s kind heart, residents and tourists started to give them food. And amazingly, the monkey would feed the pup first and would only eat when the pup is full. She puts the puppy’s welfare ahead of her own.
According to some witnesses, the two creatures are inseparable. The monkey would bring her adopted son everywhere they go. She would carry him in her arms, and when there is danger, she will tuck him away safely somewhere, and she would face the threat head-on.
The pup also seemed more confident when around his new “mom.” Residents say that the little dog is in no danger and they hope that they will stay together for a long time.
Sadly though, after several weeks, there have been sightings of the monkey alone. The pup has not been seen around as well. There is a likely chance that the authorities have separated the two.
