3. Dog's keen nose saves baby kangaroo after car accident. Rex, a 10-year-old cross between a German shorthaired and wirehaired pointer, was out for a walk with his owner Leonie Allan when the two passed a kangaroo who had been hit my a car. Thanks to Rex and his astute nose, however, the baby joey that was hidden inside the mother's pouch was saved. Says Allan, "He started pointing... I was worried he'd found a snake and called him back, but when he returned he dropped the joey at my feet." Rex was very tender with the baby, and the two even started cuddling together. The baby was cared for at the Jirrahlinga Wildlife Sanctuary, and then released into the wild when it was 18-months-old.
