5. Torque the Dog and Shrek the Owl
A greyhound and owl have formed a bizarre friendship at an animal center.
Shrek was relocated from her enclosure shortly after birth after keepers feared her stressed-out mother might eat her—a common happening after birth if the mother is anxious. To make sure Shrek was watched over, head falconer John Picton decided to bring the owl home with him. The only problem was, John already owned a six-month-old greyhound pup named Torque.
It didn’t seem to bother Torque though; the greyhound happily adopted Shrek as his own daughter and the two have become inseparable. Just like best friends, the pair roams John’s home and often spends evenings curled up on the couch watching television shows with their owner.
