A 10-year-old goat who was rescued from an accused hoarder appeared to lose his will to live when he was taken to a California sanctuary - until rescuers reunited him with his BFF, a donkey, according to video from buzz: 60.

Workers at Animal Place couldn't figure out why Mr. G refused to eat for six days and just lied around his stall at his new home, which was significantly better than his old home.

Jellybean the donkey also was rescued from the same alleged hoarder, but he was taken to a different animal sanctuary. Animal Place had never taken in a burro before, but workers figured it was worth a shot to reunite the animals, buzz: 60 says.

A volunteer drove 14 hours round-trip to get Jellybean to Mr. G, and it immediately proved to be worth it. Mr. G is seen jumping up and running toward Jellybean at first sight, and he was eating again within 20 minutes.

Rescuers says it just goes to show animals can form relationships just like humans. According to the Mail Online, neither animal will be put up for adoption so they could spend the rest of their lives together.
