“I think he’s on the back patio. Hey! Jeff! Get in here- Animal Planet’s on, and we’ve got a plate of strawberries for you!”
Meet 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.
Can someone get this guy a tiny bottle of Mrs. Butterworth’s?
