Devastated Dog Mama Adopts Orphaned Opossum

After losing her entire litter of puppies, this devastated mother set out on a mission to mend her broken heart. And just look at how happy she is now.

When Australia natives Elle and Sara Moyle welcomed their beagle Molly home after a long day in the park, they were amazed to see that she had brought home a friend – a newborn baby Opossum.

After being abandoned by her own mother, this adorable creature of the night, aptly nicknamed “Poss,” was welcomed with open arms into the Moyle household. And she seems to be absolutely delighted by her unexpected adoption.

Today, when Poss isn’t sleeping the day away, the two can be found frolicking in the woods or engaging in an old-fashioned game of piggyback. And though, as Elle puts it, “they’re an unlikely pair,” these two couldn’t be happier with their newfound bond.
