At first, Minnow the dog was "a little bit worried" about Chickpea the baby rescue chicken. That's because Minnow shares a home with a couple of African grey parrots, and "has a healthy respect for birds and their beaks," Minnow's adoptive mom, Abbie Hubbard, tells The Dodo.
But Chickpea was persuasive, following Minnow around the house and insisting on being close. And soon enough, a friendship had hatched.
"Now they cuddle up on the couch together," Hubbard says.
