Animals and Humans Create a Lifelong Bond: 19 Examples

Even though love isn’t a scientifically proven reason for animal-human friendship, we believe this is what makes this connection so special. After all, as soon as our fluffies win our hearts, we can’t part with them for years. And seeing the changes that happen with time makes these “pawsome” relationships even more impressive.

We at Bright Side admire how strong the bond between humans and their lovely animals can be. It almost seems as if they’d spend eternity next to each other.
