Matt has always wished for a furry friend. But he was also aware that having a dog involves taking on a lot of responsibility and making a lifelong commitment. But he never would have imagined that he would develop a particular attachment with an alpaca as a pet.
Inspired by his parents love for wildlife and environment, the 13-year-old boy from Adelaide, Australia, decided it’s better to adopt than to buy. So, accompanied by his parents Matt went to a farm and choose a baby alpaca to adopt.
However, little did he knew the animal whose life he just saved would become such a loyal friend. “We drove up to the alpaca farm on Christmas Eve and picked [him],” the boy told local newspaper the Messenger. “He was the smallest one there.”
Now Chewy – the alpaca, and Matt are inseparable and they have all sort of activities together. The cute animal even became a little star in the neighborhood where he and his human friend live.
Of course, just as any other celebrity that lives nowadays, Chewy also has its own Instagram account. There, over 230,000 people are fallowing the adorable alpaca and his human friend on their adventures. Check it out!
Despite being a native of the highlands of South America, Chewy adores the sea. He likes taking his human brother, Matt, for walks on the sand.
