#BestBuds: Puka And Rocket Larry

1Meet Puka, a 4-year-old mixed breed with a cleft lip..and his pal Rocket Larry The Tortoise!

Puka was rescued in L.A. when a friend of Puka’s new hoomin noticed Puka with a homeless man, and was worried the puppeh might need medical care.

Puka’s hoomin had previously rescued Rocket Larry from an L.A. Craigslist reptile hoarder.

You can see more photos of these guys on Instagram.
