Lonely dog goes across the street to hug his best friend over the fence

It’s amazing how dogs have the social skills to make friends with other dogs. Many pet owners know of the special relationships they can form with the dog next door.

That’s certainly the case for two caring dogs, who are always there for each other right on the other side of the fence.

Two dogs named Messy and Audi live across the street from each other in Thailand. Audi is often left home alone when his owners go to work, and doesn’t always take it well… but Messy’s owner, Oranit Kittragul, knows her dog is just the thing to cheer him up.

“When he feels lonely and cries, I always ask my dog to see and talk to him,” Oranit told The Dodo. “My dog just looks from my fence and sometime he barks to [Audi]. I don’t know what they are communicating, but he stops crying.”

The two formed a bond over time, with Messy always cheering Audi up with his visits. But one meeting was extra special.

One day, Audi’s owner left the gate unlocked and he was able to get out… and he ran right for Messy, where the two friends hugged each other:

“He ran to my dog and they hugged each other,” Oranit said.

Oranit captured the precious moment on camera. It showed her just how deeply these two dogs cared about each other—that they had formed a real bond over their visits and just wanted to be together.

Oranit shared the photos on social media, where they quickly went viral. Everyone loved this sweet moment between these dogs.

“My purpose is just to share a nice photo and story,” she told Today.

She said that the two dogs still hadn’t gotten to play together since they became famous, but she continued to bring her dog over to Audi’s house.

What a beautiful friendship! We’re glad these dogs have each other to turn to when they’re feeling down or alone.
