Best friends come in all shapes, sizes and colors, and when you come across someone you’re meant to be buds with, you just know.

Puka and Rocket Larry are no exception, and even though Puka is a dog and Rocket Larry is a tortoise, they get along just fine. Their owner, Christine, shares their Los Angeles, California-based adventures on Instagram, where they have more than 18,000 followers!

Puka and Rocket Larry have had loads of fun together, with lots of snuggling and dress up sessions. It’s hard not to fall instantly in love with this surprising and dynamic duo.

Both Puka, who was born with a cleft lip, and Rocket Larry were adopted, according to their Instagram account. In a YouTube video posted on the website Puka Is My Homie, Christine says rescuing the Bulldog/Bullmastiff mix in 2011 has brought so much joy into her life, and by sharing their journey together, she hopes to raise awareness about the benefits of pet adoption and rescue.

“Rescuing an animal is a beautiful, life-changing adventure,” she says in the video.

And where would Rocket Larry be without Puka? When you rescue an animal, amazing things can happen.

Cheers to new beginnings! Happy New Year! #PukaIsMyHomie #RocketLarry
