HEARTWARMING video shows how a pet dog has struck up a very unusual friendship – with a wild rabbit.

Boris, a miniature pinscher, is regularly joined on his daily walk by the rabbit in Dunfermline, Fife.

Remarkable video shows the unlikely pair playing in a field and even in a street in the town.

The rabbit is seen running after his canine pal and playfully jumping over him in the clips, filmed by owner Mark Henderson.

Mark posted the clips to social media with the caption: “Don’t think the rabbit knows he’s a dog.

“Waits every day for him when I walk him #bestpals.”

The video shows Mark taking Boris for a walk, accompanied by the rabbit.

Boris and the rabbit can be seen standing side by side as Mark continues to walk past.

As Boris walks away, the rabbit follows and then runs towards Boris, 10, before jumping on him.

The inseparable pair are seen together in another video as Boris and the rabbit walk together down a quiet street.

Boris, wagging his tail, runs towards the pavement, and is once again followed by the rabbit.
