Local News

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A rescue organization in Rochester has brought together two unlikely friends.

Herman the Pigeon suffered neurological damage more than a year ago and can no longer fly.

The Mia Foundation took him in. The organization helps animals with special needs and birth defects.

Herman was paired with little Lundy, a chihuahua puppy that can’t walk and the two really hit it off.

They started cuddling almost immediately. The foundation raised $6,000 in two days after posting their picture on social media.

People who love these two can also pre-order a book about them.
