A Tiny Owl Gets Adopted by a Giant Dog, and Their Bond Is Undeniable

Poldi the owlet hatched 2 days later than all of his siblings, so it was clear to everybody that this tiny, weak boy needed special care and attention. But he got really lucky — Ingo the Belgian Malinois came to his rescue. The dog immediately felt how vulnerable Poldi was and decided to become a protector and best friend to the tiny owl. They both have become a part of Tanja Brandt’s family, who captures their adventures and shares them on social media.

We at Bright Side absolutely fell in love with this incredible friendship and we’d like to show you 20 of Ingo and Poldi’s best photos.
