Great Danes and Goats, Oh My!

It's always difficult for a shelter to adopt out two animals as a pair, but when the duo are emotionally attached, it's sometimes the only fair thing to do. This is most certainly the case with Judy the Great Dane and Minnelli the Goat.

They were discovered wandering around a Dallas-area wedding chapel in the beginning of July and the pair seems inseparable. In fact, when either animal is taken away from the other for a procedure, the other is simply miserable. The couple eats together, sleeps together and plays together. And, thanks to the power of the news media both online and off, the pair is certain to be adopted together (along with their new friend Lucky). The shelter received hundreds of requests for the duo and is now trying to sift through the applications to find the right home for the pair.
