A dog and pig duo were found on Sept. 23 near an intersection in Seffner, a suburb in Hillsborough County, according to Bay News 9.

The person who found them says the best friends are "extremely bonded," and the pig "screams terribly when separated from the dog." 

Pictures of the two were posted on the Facebook page of Lost and Found Pets of Hillsborough County saying the person who found them could not keep them, and if they did not find a home, the two would be separated.

Good news! It appears that Bay News 9's is reporting the best friends have been reunited with their owner. Here's a video from FOX 13 showing Petey the Pig and his friend K2 with William Landry, the owner who calls them family.
