True Animal Love: Dog Adopts Orphaned Opossums

These cute, little baby opossums were left orphaned after their mother was killed by a dog. The little opossums were found by Stephanie Maldonado, who’s a dog trainer. Stephanie tried to save them but she feared that she might lose them since the opossums were so young, they had yet to open their eyes.


Luckily, Stephanie’s dog Pretinha came to the rescue. Pretinha started nursing them and soon the opossums were strong enough to climb on the dog’s back.

“It’s very nice to see all the care that she has with them, licking them all the time and nestling them,” explains Maldonado.True-Animal-Love-Dog-Adopts-Orphaned-Opossums-2

Stephanie hopes to return the opossums to the wild once they’re ready and old enough.

Now, this is a story showing the unselfish and true animal love!
