If you love stories of unlikely animal rescues and beautiful interspecies friendships as much as I do, this one is for you!

A piglet, who had survived a fall from a slaughterhouse-bound truck in Kansas, was found in the road and rescued by a family who happens to run a veterinary hospital. In the video from My Fox Boston, vet staff say that it was a surprise she even survived her severe injuries, but survive she did! Not only that, but according to Huffington Post the piglet now named Mu Shu (yes, unfortunately, like mu shu pork) has befriended the family dog, Hunter.

Hunter leads Mu Shu who is partially blind, along with keeping her clean and playing with her, according to My Fox Boston. After seeing how inseparable the two became, the family decided to adopt Mu Shu permanently.

Watch the almost unbearably adorable video of Hunter and Mu Shu cuddling and playing together below! If it weren’t for Mu Shu’s unfortunate name, this would be the perfect companion story to those images that say “Why love one but eat the other?”
