After losing her entire litter of puppies, a beagle has a new sense of purpose after adopting a baby possum.

The unlikely pair became inseparable just days after Molly’s pups died at birth.

It’s understood that the possum, named Poss (because of course) was abandoned by her mum.

“They’re an unlikely pair, and I think that possum thought Mol was her mother and vice versa,” Molly’s owners, Elle and Sara Moyle, told 9News.

“It’s certainly uplifted her mood, they both needed each other I think so it’s been a fantastic relationship,” Sara said.

Not only does Poss score piggyback rides on Molly’s back, when Poss sleeps in the trees around the property, Molly keeps an eye on her.

“Molly just sits under the tree where she’s sleeping and just waits for her,” Elle said.


We’re not crying.
