Just in the past few days with Nero by his side, the once frightened Digby has blossomed into a happy pup, says RSPCA officer Natalie Ditchfield:
"He seemed to come out of his shell as soon as we arrived at Southridge and spotted Nero. It really is a love story!"
Thanks to all the attention surrounding this unlikely friendship, little Digby has found even more friends. The RSPCA tells The Dodo that he has since been adopted by a new family and will move into his forever home in the coming days.
