A shared history of trauma can bring people together through a bond of understanding and empathy. Such stress can have that effect on animals too, as these rescues of very different species show us in this video. Zodiac the mink and Baladi the Egyptian dog have been building a relationship together after surviving separate lives of hardships.
Zodiac was rescued from a fur-factory and Baladi from a life of abuse in Cairo by Camels and Friends, according to Laughing Squid. They both met for the first time recently and had a relaxed, easy-going time sniffing each other and romping around the room. Let them warm your heart on this fall day. Check out the video below:
