Unbelievable duo!

I saw this article by Josh Starling at this site: http://www.inspiremore.com/belgian-shepherd-adopts-tiny-rescue-owl/, and I could not wait to share it with you because I am sure you, too, will be amazed at how the bond of friendship and trust developed between these two unlikely fauna creatures, thus, the caption, ‘Unbelievable duo!’

Gentle Giant Adopts Tiny Rescue Owl, His Protective Love Will Make Your Day.

Tanja Brandt is a German photographer who has dedicated her career to photographing animals and wildlife. In one of her most recent projects, Brandt shot photographs of a highly, unlikely pair of friends. Ingo, the Belgian shepherd; and Poldi -short for Napoleon- the one-year-old owlet who have formed the most incredible bond.

Brandt describes the relationship between Ingo and Poldi as somewhat of a ‘protector-protected’ relationship. Ingo is a guardian for Poldi, whom Brandt says “doesn’t know how to live free.”Poldi didn’t hatch until two days after his six brothers and sisters.

Poldi didn’t hatch until two days after his six brothers and sisters.

Ingo, on the other hand, comes from a family of strong and oftentimes ruthless police dogs.

Even though Ingo is much bigger and stronger, it’s clear he would never hurt his friend.

    Very touching,,,i am sure Ingo is a trained dog and whoever trained him deserves a lot of credit, Jokingly of course, kids should be enrolled in dog centers or hire dog trainers as school teachers.
