In Rode, India, locals were touched by the compassion of a Rhesus macaque monkey who had adopted a homeless puppy. Town locals thought it was bizarre at first, but the apparent love between the two animals was too much to deny. This just goes to show you that love knows no species.

The monkey cares for the little puppy and keeps the little one close as if he were caring for his own baby.
