It's not every day that you hear about a dog befriending a giraffe. But, this was the case for Jazz the newborn giraffe and Hunter the dog.

The two animals reside at The Rhino Orphanage in Limpopo, and their friendship started as soon as Jazz arrived at the orphanage and needed some TLC.

The orphaned giraffe was dehydrated and received special care from not only Dr Pierre, but his special friend Hunter.

"We were contacted two days ago by a landowner in our area to assist with a giraffe calf that was left abandoned by its mother. Very dehydrated and weak it was evident that the little one was only about 2 - 3 days old. The owner has no idea why mom left him behind and we are hoping that their is nothing internally wrong with the little one," The Rhino Orphanage said in a Facebook statement.

"Our vet dr Pierre placed an IV catheter and we started administering TPN (intravenous food) immediately. The baby was very comatose for the first 18 hours but started showing signs of waking up. Further IV fluids were administered and it seems like the little boy is getting stronger. He managed to stand up a few times with the help of our carers and walked around this evening on very unsure legs," the statement further read.

To date, Jazz's condition has improved and he enjoys playing around with his friend Hunter.
