(CNN/Nine News Australia) - A dog in Australia adopted a baby possum after losing her litter of puppies.
Molly,a beagle, lost her puppies at birth, but just a few days later, welcomed a new baby to mother.
A baby possum jumped on her back and has been holding on tight ever since.
Poss - as the aptly named critter is called - was abandoned by her mother.
The two now hang out on their cattle farm in Victoria as a bonded duo.
Molly even waits under the tree where poss sleeps during the day to keep a watchful eye on her new baby.
