When Diana got Nova The German Shepherd, she introduced her to all kinds of animals, including rats, cats, and parrots. When Nova grew up, Diana decided to buy another pet animal but this time a ferret. She wanted a ferret that knows how to be with dogs and ended up adopting Pacco The Ferret.
Meet Nova The German Shepherd and Pacco The Ferret who lives together with their mom Diana who first adopted Nova and taught her to be friendly with other animals. When Nova grew up, she then adopted Pacco and since then the two are the best of friends who live together as if they don't know they are different. When they first met, Pacco was taking a tour of the new home while Nova was following her new friend like a shadow. After a few days, Pacco started noticing her friend and then the fun part started. Since then they both are crazy about each other and are always up for thrilling adventures. Their matching personalities and the fact that they both met other animals when they were growing up are probably the main reasons why they get along so nicely.
“From creating a safe environment in the house to developing a raw menu, health issues and dealing with poop, you have to know a lot about them,” she explained. “Before I got Pacco, I spent at least half a year gathering information. Still, I’m learning about him every day.”
Diana also warned that ferrets aren’t for everyone. “For starters, they bite. Some do it more, some less, but they definitely let you know if they don’t like something. They also sense fear, so if you get afraid of them, they’ll use it to their advantage.” So, if you have little kids running around or aren’t willing to put up with their neediness, maybe you shouldn’t get one.
“You really need to pay close attention to the conditions you create for them and the food you give them. If you mess something up, it can quickly snowball into huge veterinary bills.”
