German Shepherd And Ferret Become Best Friends And Their Instagram Is Too Cute.

When it comes to friendship, looks really don’t matter.

The day Diana Grib of Poland decided to add a pet ferret to her family, she worried her German shepherd Nova might not approve. As it turns out, she had nothing to worry about. As soon as she brought Pacco home, the two of them became inseparable!


Their mom quickly discovered their personalities make them the perfect companions!

“They are very similar and different at the same time,” she wrote on Instagram. “What they really have in common is their curiosity, bravery, and playfulness.”


Even when Pacco tries to lead their small pack, Nova is always a wonderful big sister. “She’s very patient,” Diana said. “She doesn’t get mad at Pacco even if he hurts her a little bit while playing.â€

As for Pacco, he may be a handful sometimes, but he’s incredibly friendly! “He is nothing like a standard ferret should be,” she added. “He loves to cuddle and give kisses to everyone – me, Nova, or even strangers during our walks.”


At the end of the day, these BFFs love spending time together. Their favorite hobbies are play fighting, running around outside, going for long walks, competing in tug-of-war with a ball, and of course, cuddling up for long naps on the couch.


“It sometimes feels that I own two dogs,”Diana said. “Nova is really happy to just have someone by her side.”

While caring for ferrets isn’t always easy, Diana prepared herself for the challenge and is loving every minute of it. “Before I got Pacco, I spent at least half a year gathering information. Still, I’m learning about him every day.”


These cuties are sure to put a smile on your face! You can see more of their sweet friendship on Instagram.
