AUSTRALIA - A Beagle in Australia adopted a baby possum after losing her litter of puppies.

Molly lost her puppies at birth, but just a few days later, welcomes a new baby to mother. A baby possum jumped on her back and has been holding on ever since. 

Poss, the name given to the possum by Molly's family, was abandoned by her mother. 

The two now hang out together on their cattle farm in Victoria, Australia.
