Having friends whom you can rely on is paramount, especially during difficult moments in your life. Any bad experience is easier to overcome when you have someone to share the burden with. And that is true for animals as it is for humans.

The two adorable puppies in the video below come from similar backgrounds. Both pups were abandoned and were forced to live on the streets of Vietnam with no one looking after them. They had to find food and shelter on their own, so every day was a fight for survival.

Fortunately, both of them were rescued and adopted by Vietnamese nuns who offered them a permanent home and a new chance at a happy life. But the memory of the life they’ve had on the street was still fresh.

Both puppies were scared and afraid to interact with humans. Still, they’ve found comfort in each other and became best friends from the instant they’ve met. What’s more, as you can see in the clip below, they refused to stop hugging each other ever since. This has to be one of the cutest animal friendships ever! Hopefully, they can learn to trust humans again as well. Take a look!
