A dog and a bird have become the best of friends after the rottweiler saved the jackdaw's life.

The dog, named Bowza, found the bird at the side of a busy main road and took him home to nurse him back to health.

Since then, the pair have become inseparable and the little jackdaw (named Bondi) even rides on Bowza's head. The pair live with their owner Don Cox, aged 72, in Ipswich, Suffolk.

Mr Cox said: 'When we found Bondi, after Bowza pulled me over to the curb. Bondi was just lying there near the gutter with all these cars driving past. He was just a ball of feathers.

'I searched around but couldn't see an adult or a nest and couldn't just leave him otherwise he would be killed.' 

Don said now Bondi is back to good health and they will be keeping him.

Mr Cox said: 'Bowza is pretty laid back so doesn't mind at all. They get on really well.

'Bondi is getting on really well now, someone has given me a parrot cage for him to sleep in. But most of time, he is out of his cage loose, flying around the house. 

Bowza previously performed a lifesaving act of kindness in November. 

The 52 kilo rottweiler cross tended to an injured woman on a freezing afternoon in November after she had collapsed and hit her head and was unable to get up. The seven-year-old dog received an award for his lifesaving act of kindness

The seven-year-old dog received an award for his lifesaving act of kindness after he was commended by the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals.

Don said Bowza 'instinctively' snuggled up to the injured woman to keep her warm and laid by her side for and a half hours while she waited for an ambulance.

Don said: 'Bowza laid down and never left her side. He had his front legs and head resting on her.

'He kept her warm, if he didn't she probably would have got hypothermia. He just knew, dogs are instinctive like that'. 

The pooch has now been dubbed the 'Hero of Hadleigh'.

Don said: 'Bowza is great, he will do absolutely anything for me.'

Bowza's actions also earned him to lead the football teams out at Ipswich Town's Portman Road ground.
