A lion and a dog bound by a special friendship
Even the king of the savannah may surprise us. In an animal park in Oklahoma, USA , a lion of more than 150 pounds has taken a liking to a small dog. The two became inseparable companions more.
Sometimes animals can become the best of friends. That’s what happened to Bonedigger and Milo, two residents of the GW Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, United States.
For several years, the pair don’t part even for a minute: an amazing relationship when we know that the first is a lion of 150 kg and the second a little dachshund! One can only imagine the surprise of the fleet manager, John Reinke, when he witnessed the birth of this special friendship.
Bonedigger and Milo spend their days playing together, licking and kissing. The little dachshund did not even hesitate to use dentist lion cleaning his teeth after every meal. “This friendship between a dachshund and a lion is unique” said the manager. “It would not be as friendly with other dogs,”
These two animals are together from the youngest age. Moreover, the lion is not like the others, he was born with a metabolic bone disease that left him partially disabled when he was little, so it does not move like a normal lion.
