'It’s a perfect case scenario for the animals.'
The unlikely friends were adopted after being rescued together in Pennsylvania.
The two animals went home with their new owners Wednesday night to a farm in southeastern Pennsylvania."Hemingway immediately went for a dip in his new and bigger pool and Waffles seemed very happy to roll in the grass," Cindy Kelly, spokeswoman for the Bucks County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), told"Good Morning America" Thursday.
"Their new home includes the company of other horses, goats and other farm animals," she said."It’s a perfect case scenario for the animals."Waffles, a miniature horse, and Hemingway, a goose, were rescued from a property in Buck's County, Pennsylvania, in July, by officials with the local SPCA.
Though they were rescued along with two peacocks and nearly a dozen ducks, Waffles and Hemingway proved to be best buds."We have them in the barn together and one of the staff observed one day that Hemingway was leaning his head in and kind of had his neck wrapped over Waffle's shoulder," Kelly told"GMA" earlier this month."It was very sweet."
Waffles came to the Bucks County SPCA with a minor infection that was treated by doctors before the adoption could take place. When SPCA staff took Waffles from the stall for treatment, Hemingway would display"protective behaviors," she said.
"He'll honk and flap his wings and let you know, 'Hey leave my buddy alone,' or 'You better bring him back,'" Kelly said."They really seem to have this bond."After Waffles and Hemingway's story went viral, the Bucks County SPCA received more than 150 applications for adoption, including at least one from outside the U.S., according to Kelly.Read more: ABC News »
