This Insanely Cute Dog And Tortoise BFF Duo Is Everything Right Now (Photos)
A dog is man's best friend.
But, how about a tortoise's?
That's the case with Puka and Rocket Larry, an inseparable dog-reptile best friend duo.
The pup, Puka, was rescued from a homeless man by owner Christine Hilberg.
And Hilberg bought Rocket Larry from a reptile hoarder on Craigslist.
The two have been best pals since entering Hilberg's critter-filled home, and they make frequent appearances on the photography retoucher's popular Instagram page.
Now, Hilberg uses her pets' star statuses to advocate animal rights.
I use my Instagram account to share the perks of having a strong relationship with an animal, to help further the cause for rescuing animals and spread awareness for animal adoption.
And if these adorable mugs don't make you want to adopt a pet (or five), nothing will.
Check 'em out below.
Here is 4-year-old Puka. She's a mixed breed with a cleft lip.
And here's Rocket Larry, a rare African sulcata tortoise.
The latter is named after Larry David because, as Hilberg explains,
Both are stubborn, bald and love to improvise.
