After losing his parents, this 3 year old orangutan
was so depressed he wouldn't eat and didn't respond
to any medical treatments. The veterinarians thought
he would surely die from sadness. The zoo keepers
found an old sick dog on the grounds in the park at
the zoo where the orangutan lived and took the dog
to the animal treatment center. The dog arrived at
the same time the orangutan was there being treated.
The 2 lost souls met and have been inseparable
ever since.

The orangutan found a new reason to live and each

always tries his best to be a good companion to
his new found friend. They are together 24 hours
a day in all their activities.

They live in Northern California where swimming

is their favorite past time, although Roscoe
(the orangutan) is a little afraid of the water
and needs his friend's help to swim.
Together they have discovered the joy and 
laughter in life and the value of friendship.
They have found more than a friendly shoulder
to lean on.

Long Live Friendship!
