Sunshine story: Pit bull carried her injured friend to safety

In July this year, Joanie the pit bull was discovered roaming the streets of Savannah, Georgia. She carried something in her mouth; an injured Chihuahua. From time to time she'd put her friend down and lick his eye, which was badly infected.

The two best friends had clearly been through some adventures, but even though posts of them went viral, no one stepped up to claim them.

The Chihuahua got the name Chachi - the pair are named after the Happy Days characters Joanie and Chachi. His eye couldn't be saved, but he was still delighted to be reunited with Joanie after spending time at the vet's.

The couple made headlines again, as the shelter tried to find a forever home for them - preferably one where they could stay together. Neither seems to care about other dogs, they're so devoted to each other the shelter calls them soul mates.

There are times when wishes come true. They've found a forever home in Florida and will move in during this month.
