A tiny Chihuahua dumped between two rubbish bins has become best friends with a mastiff - 120 times bigger than him.
Digby, who is just five weeks old and weighs less than 1lb, was found moments from death outside a block of flats. He is now recovering at the Southridge RSPCA Animal Centre at South Mimms with the help of Nero, a nine-stone Neapolitan Mastiff.
Nero is so big he eats the equivalent weight of four Digbys in dog food every day. The gentle giant was rescued by the centre manager Anna White and spends his days with her at the RSPCA.
He is besotted with his little friend and the two have become inseparable at the centre.
- Digby was found severely dehydrated and cowering between two bins at a block of flats in North London on Monday night
- The RSPCA is appealing for information in a bid to trace his owner
- Unless an owner comes forward, Digby will be available for rehoming in the coming days
