Dog Adopts Orphaned Opossum And Insists On Carrying Her “Baby” On Her Back

Poncho the opossum was orphaned as a baby when he was found clinging to the side of his mother after she had been hit by a car.

Poncho survived, but needed a caregiver. He was brought to Myrtle Beach Safari and was introduced to Hantu, a white German Shepherd, who has no babies of her own, but has a lot of love to give.

The two quickly bonded and have been inseparable ever since! Poncho still rides on her back even though he’s much bigger now. Check out the heartwarming video below to see how close these two are!
