Two amazing dogs with a special love for each other touched the hearts of animal control officers, and are now being adopted into a new home.

About a week ago, Joanie the pit bull was seen carrying an injured dog inside her mouth, around a neighborhood in Savannah, Georgia.

Chachi the Chihuahua had a badly infected eye and from time to time, Joanie would put him down and lick his eye for comfort.

Animal control officers picked up the dogs and immediately noticed the sweet relationship between the animals.

Chachi lost his eye, but appears to be in good spirits, especially when Joanie is around.

The dogs’ owners never came forward so the pair was put up for adoption.

Officials hoped the dogs would be adopted together because neither seemed to care about other dogs at the shelter, only each other.

And their wish came true.

An anonymous donor from Florida has agreed to take Joanie and Chachi together.

The soul mates are expected to move to their new home sometime in August.
