The internet is littered with images of unusual animal friendships but this one certainly takes the cake.
The incident took place in Punjab, India, where two young pups fell into a well.
The owner discovered that they had fallen in the well as the mother stood barking at the edge of the shallow well.
Fortunately, the well was almost dry else the pups would have drowned. However, the bad news was that the pups were stuck in the well with a deadly King Cobra.
