When Poldi the owlet hatched two days later than the rest of his siblings, everyone realized that this tiny, frail creature needed extra care and attention. But his luck changed when Ingo the Belgian Malinois saved the day. Ingo immediately sensed how fragile Poldi was and took charge. He became the tiny owl’s friend and loyal protector. Both have joined Tanja Brandt’s family, who shares their heartwarming adventures on social media.

After falling in love with this wonderful friendship, we at Buhamster are happy to show the world some of Ingo and Poldi’s best photos.

When some people see Ingo and Poldi together, they often worry that often try to “save” the owl for fear that Ingo will hurt Poldi. They seem to think two completely different animals can’t get along.

While some photos are spontaneous, some photos are posed by professional photographers. Tanja often uses additional equipment to make her photos look more professionally shot.
