Friendships have no boundaries, not even among different species.
An abandoned newborn giraffe, named Jazz, was in a dire situation when he was first rescued a week ago by wildlife workers in South Africa.
But thankfully, Jazz was pulled out of a coma and is on the road to recovery -- all thanks to his new best friend friend Hunter, a guard dog at the wildlife rehab center. Under the attentive licks of Hunter, Jazz has been able to to gain back strength.
According to a Facebook post by The Rhino Orphanage, Hunter is equally taken with Jazz, as Jazz is with him. Hunter, who also assists in anti-poaching efforts has reportedly, "fallen head over heels" for Jazz.
"Just when we thought it couldn't get any cuter, sweeter and more heart-warming, this happened," the center wrote about a video (shared below) of the pair nuzzling each other, adding that the bond between the animals is "astonishing."
Hunter, is a Belgian Malinois, and "stays in the room all day with Jazz."Hunter doesn't even allow his brother Duke to come close to Jazz, according to the center. Hunter was so upset when Jazz was in a coma that he "didn't want to eat."
We're happy Jazz and Hunter have each other.

"His eye is red due to blood pooling when he was in a coma. Our vet is treating and popping in later to check up. Hopefully it clears up soon," The Rhino Orphanage explained.
