Lexi the horse and George the alpaca are on their way to finding a forever home together, after a history of probable neglect helped them form a lifelong friendship.
"They have a very strong bond with each other," Ontario SPCA inspector Brad Dewar told The Dodo. "That's something you can see within a few minutes of being around them."
The pair was taken in three months ago due to concerns about their welfare. While details about their past are unavailable as an investigation is ongoing, Dewar said that "they were in a state where they could no longer remain where they were."
What is clear is that Lexi's past has affected her. The timid Clydesdale mix is extremely scared of people and objects, and will become very uncomfortable when someone or something new approaches her.
