penny and roo


This is another heart-warming story about an unlikely animal friendship. Penny the chicken and Roo the Chihuahua were both rescued by Alicia Williams who works at the Duluth Animal Hospital in Georgia, USA.


Roo was found in a ditch of a park. Due to his missing front legs, it was suspected that Roo was abandoned by a backyard breeder because of his deformities.


Penny, a Silkie chicken came from a laboratory. She was “an experimental chicken” that had “run the course of the experiment”, Alicia told Gwinnett Daily Post, “I asked if I could have her instead of them doing anything with her”.


Penny and Roo have developed an adorable friendship and love hanging out together, whether it’s playing in the snow,


dressing up,



or napping.
