SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — An unlikely pair is getting a lot of attention in Florida: Ruth the cat and her “guard dog” Idgie the dachshund.
The two were found abandoned at the end of a driveway three months ago, according to Daily Mail. Ruth is paralyzed and moves by pulling herself by her front paws, and Idgie is her protector.
Idgie actually barked and growled at rescuers when they first found the duo, according to Daily Mail.
Animal rescuers are trying to find the pair a home together.
For now, they’re living at a pet store. Anytime a dog comes too close to Ruth, Idgie growls and barks. Most of the time, she doesn’t often leave Ruth’s side.
