Dog Adopts Orphaned Opossums, Gives Them Awesome Rides On Her Back!

These baby opossums were orphaned when their mother was killed by a dog in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They were found by Stephanie Maldonado, a dog trainer, who tried to save them, but it didn’t look good for the four joeys; they were so little that they had yet to open their eyes.

And that’s when Maldonado’s dog, Pretinha, came to the rescue. She began to nurse them, and soon, the joeys had gained enough strength to climb onto Pretinha’s back. She even gave them piggy-back rides!

“It’s very nice to see all the care that she has with them, licking them all the time and nestling them,” Maldonado wrote on Facebook. When the joeys are older, she hopes to return them to the wild.

So sweet! Thank you Rockinruby for sharing another heartwarming story. We have a possum or 2 that we are feeding along with our feral cats and they are pretty adorable. Our ferals are not bonding with them unfortunately but so far they exist side by side in peace.
