When animals from different species form close bonds of friendship, it is the most heartwarming thing ever. One German shepherd, Nova, has a pocket-sized BFF in the form of a ferret named Pacco. These two are so precious in their friendship, despite the vast differences in their physical sizes.
Ferrets are very intelligent creatures who can be quite playful, as well as very affectionate and in constant need of attention.
Luckily enough for Pacco, there is never a shortage of attention for him, as Nova is a very sweet dog, and incredibly patient with her ferret friend – even if he gets a little too excited.
Keeping dogs and ferrets together always requires a certain level of caution, as sometimes a ferret can trigger the dog’s natural instinct to hunt.
However, both Pacco and Nova were already quite used to living amongst other animals when they first met. In just a few days, these two had become the best of friends.
Pacco and Nova are pretty much inseparable at this point, and love playing together, as well as going on little adventures together before curling up for a nap with one another.
The two have a shared account on Instagram, nova_n_pacco, where fans can follow their heartwarming friendship captured through pictures.
