“I noticed every time I took them out, the other would whine and cry,” Kellie Szczepanski, a volunteer with the Taylor Animal Shelter, told The Dodo. “Buck was always trying to get to Willy. Taylor Animal Shelter houses a lot of strays from Lincoln Park, and it isn't unusual for them to bring in a couple at a time, so we didn't know at first that they were picked up together.”
A husky and a Chihuahua are not a typical pairing, so it wasn’t anyone’s first instinct to assume these dogs were pals. As soon as Szczepanski noticed how excited the two dogs would get whenever they passed each other, though, she decided to try taking them out together — and soon realized just how bonded the unusual pair was.
