Yesterday, Melbourne couple Sally and Jon Watkinson found a baby possum nestled in the fur of their dog’s corded coat.
With nowhere else to turn, it seemed the frightened animal put his trust in the puli, and he was not disappointed. Dogs and possums do not typically get along, but both Watkinson’s dogs surprised their mom with their calm reactions to the little hitchhiker.
“Hugo and Kato seemed to barely notice it was there,” Sally Watkinson wrote in a Facebook post. “It's most surprising that Hugo was not barking frantically at it. Apparently, Kato was seemingly oblivious also.”
