Loyal Penguin Swims 5,000 Miles Every Year To Reunite With Man Who Saved His Life

Because this penguin understands what it is to have a best friend.

The Daily Mail reports retired bricklayer and part time fisherman Joao Pereira de Souza,  discovered the tiny bird languishing on rocks in 2011.

He’s 71-years-old and from an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

The poor little guy was covered in oil.

Joao cleaned him up, nursed him back to health, and named him Dindim.

When the bird appeared to be recovered, Joao released him back to sea, figuring he would never see him again.

How wrong could he be?
Dog Is Good

Joao tells TV Globo “I love the penguin like it’s my own child and I believe the penguin loves me.”

A biologist says he thinks Dindim believes Joao is a penguin and part of his family.

However you explain it, this is one endearing and beautiful relationship.
