A Rescued Chihuahua Becomes Best Of Friends With A Huge Mastiff.

He only weighs about a pound, but for this tiny Chihuahua, having a best pal about 130 times his size is a great source of comfort.

The tiny Digby was abandoned in the street, between two trash bins in north London. Just over a month old and weighing less than 1 lb, the puppy was freezing and dangerously close to death.

Luckily, Digby was rescued by the RSPCA and taken to one of the organization’s centers where he quickly became inseparable from 130-pound Neapolitan Mastiff Nero. (Scroll down for the video.)

Center manager Anna White said:

It was as if the little fellow took on Nero as his personal minder.

Poor Digby had to be rescued once by the RSPCA and it seems like he is taking precautions to make sure nothing can happen to him again.

Digby was severely dehydrated when he was found, but he was revived by the reassuring presence of his towering friend, who eats more than Digby’s weight in pet food each day.

Natalie Ditchfield, RSPCA animal collection officer, said:

It is so lovely to see he is safe and happy.

When I first came across Digby he was frozen and shaking and had just been left to die. He’s really tiny — small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.

He seemed to come out of his shell as soon as we arrived at Southridge and spotted Nero. It really is a love story.

The RSPCA is appealing for information as they attempt to locate Digby’s owner. If he or she is not found, Digby will be available for adoption in the coming days.
