Terrier dog befriends gosling at Leeds animal centre


An orphaned goose has formed an unlikely friendship with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier after being given a home at a dog rescue centre in Leeds.

Named Orville, the gosling was one week old when he was found alone and injured in Morley.

Brian Wheelhouse, founder of the Whitehall Dog Rescue centre in East Ardsley, said: "Ruby was there from the beginning and I think he saw her as a mother figure. He just started following her around and it got to the point where he wouldn't go out if Ruby wasn't there.

"She loves him and he loves her."
