Friendships don’t always come easy. There are times when hindrances and barriers come between two friends – a fence, for example.
It’s not that rare to see two animals from different species form an adorable friendship. We often see cats and dogs live peacefully inside a house but a dog and a deer being the best of friends? Now that’s new.
Huey is a dependable dog rescued nine years ago by his mom named Holly Faulconer, and he has become very much protective of her.
One day, Holly saw a deer on her property, trying to steal some seeds from her bird feeder, but instead of telling the deer to go away, she found it interesting.
Holly named the deer Sassafras, and eventually, she started visiting Holly’s yard for a completely different purpose.
A New Friend
As it turns out, Sassafras has formed a special bond with Huey.
Holly said, “Huey was a little confused at first and definitely cautious. I would just talk to them both and make sure they both felt safe. Slowly, they just started talking over the fence!”
Once the two animals warmed up and got comfortable with each other, they started to bond over the fence.
According to Holly, “This deer visits a few times a week,” and it might have taken her a few visits before getting Huey’s complete trust, but now they’re best of friends and are probably thinking of how to get rid of the fence that’s separating them.
