Fortunately, Apollo had been microchipped so his and Grizzly's owner, Michelle Aviña, could be tracked down. She lives just a few blocks away from where the two had been found and had been worried sick about them.
"Someone left our side gate open and they walked out," Aviña told The Dodo. "Usually they'll stay in the yard, but I think they were feeling adventurous that morning."
No one is sure whose idea it was exactly to stray from home, but the fact that they did it together comes as no surprise. Turns out, the 6-month-old pig and 2-year-old pit bull are downright inseparable — true BFFs.
"They eat together, sleep together, dig holes together," Aviña said. "Wherever Apollo goes, Grizzly is right behind him."
