A mastiff called Bruno and baby chimpanzee named Limbani have struck up an unlikely friendship at a wildlife sanctuary in Miami.

The Zoological Wildlife Foundation Miami has uploaded videos of two of its inhabitants playing together.

In one clip, a weary Bruno lets Limbani climb all over him, and barely bats an eyelid as the chimp grabs at his snout.

In another, the pair play-fight over a wooden log.

The chimp and dog play with a log

When Bruno wins the game, the chimp tries to swing from a tree onto the dog’s back, which again, barely seems to bother him.

May their incredibly pure friendship continue.
