This happy post then made it to the famous WeRateDogs Twitter handle. “Delta lives at a seaside (https://twitter.com/DolphinResearch/status/1271052121924927491) sanctuary in the Florida Keys and has been best friends with Gunner ever since he was a puppy,” says a tweet about the two. They’ve also shared more pictures of the duo.
