ONE of Scotland's first rescue chickens has formed an unusual friendship with a rescue dog.

Maisie Goodchicken is one of thousands of birds saved from the chop at the last minute by a Scottish group who buy them from farmers. Maisie, two, now lives in suburban Edinburgh and has bonded with her owner's pet greyhound, Colin, 12, who was himself rescued. The pair play in Fiona McGravie's garden in Currie and cuddle up on the sofa. Ms McGravie said it showed why the work of Wing And A Prayer Rescue was so important.
