Dog Adopts Baby Opossums, Carry Them On Her Back

These newborn opossums were orphaned after their mom was killed by a dog in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They were discovered by Stephanie Maldonado, a dog instructor, who attempted to rescue them, though it didn’t look good for the 4 baby opossums; they were so small that they hadn’t opened their eyes yet.

And that’s when Maldonado’s pup, Pretinha, came to the rescue. She began to lookout of them, and quickly, the small creatures had gotten many energy to climb onto Pretinha’s back. She actually gave them piggy-back rides!
