Police in the City of Fontana, California, recently received multiple calls about a Pit Bull roaming the streets … with a piglet. When police arrived, they found the pair together, taking a break from their escapades on the front lawn of someone’s home.

Thankfully, Apollo, the Pit Bull was microchipped so the police were able to find their guardians. Thankfully the police located their parents, who shared that the pair, Apollo and piglet Grizzly, are inseparable. They eat from the same bowl, sleep in the same bed, play together, and will even swim together. Can’t. Handle. 

The City of Fontana reminded the public to please microchip your animals … including pigs! If Apollo wasn’t microchipped, who knows what the fate could have been for these two pals. 


There’s also an important lesson to be learned from Apollo and Grizzly’s friendship. If these two understand that they’re more alike than they are different, even though they’re not the same species, then surely we can learn to love our fellow humans can’t we?

There is proof that pigs possess equal or more intelligence than the dogs and cats we keep as pets. They also like to do many of the things our pets do, like getting belly rubs, sunbathing, swimming, and searching for food. The sad truth of it all is that pigs and all farm animals are more like our beloved pets than most people would like to admit. It might seem odd, but at the end of the day, dogs and pigs share many similar traits, so why not love them equally?

We are so happy Apollo and Grizzly found their way home! Here’s to many more happy memories for these adorable BFFs.

I made a promise to tell my testimony all over the globe once my man come back to me and my husband came just as Great Mother told me when she helped me. I made the right choice to have contacted Great Mother the great spell caster who is capable of helping you solve your problems. My man left me to suffer and i never believed that he will come back to me again but when i contacted Great Mother she assured me that my man will come again. She gave me some list of items to buy but i could not get them in my country and so i sent her the money and she bought the items and prepared the perfect love spell. My husband ran back to me in 3 days time begging for forgiveness THIS IS SO REAL AND GENUINE. NO SCAMS. I was so surprise that the spell worked just as she told me. This is so amazing and i want you to believe because Great Mother is so real and i urge you contact her now on her email so that she can also help you the way she helped me. Her email is [email protected] and you can also contact her with her phone number on whats app +27836708212.Mama also helps in financial blessing winning lotto tender court cases boosting business promotion at work remove bad luck

Thank you Leonardo! We learned of the poaching and dangers to Elephants and other species from cable when my family was young. We made a bargain at that time if we should ever have money we would support the men in Kenya protecting the Elephants and any others, any species.
Today I fear the loss of our own wolves. I remember when special people worked so hard to repopulate the Rocky Mountain species. Now there is no conservation, no protection, no hunting, just killing. They are killing mothers and pups in Dens. They are killing by helicopter. Wolves belonging to Yellow Stone have been killed close to the park. These are living beings. They are so much like your family dog. They are so much like us. Children are being taught to kill. We need a man like Teddy Roosevelt! The planet needs a man like that. Thank you Leonardo. I know you do more. More of us need to do something. Do Something!
