4 Possums were orphaned when a dog killed their mother. These possums were so tiny, they didn’t even open their eyes. The chances of their survival looked grim!

That’s when Pretinha, a dog, came to their rescue. She adopted these orphaned possums, nursed them and looking after them like a mother.

She even gave them piggy-back rides! “It’s very nice to see all the care that she has with them, licking them all the time and nestling them,” says the owner of Pretinha.
