Doting Dog Adopts Baby Opossum After His Mom Was Hit By A Car

Hantu, a white German Shepherd, has an unlike pup – an opossum named Poncho. Poncho’s mom was hit by a car. Rescuers found the little baby opossum clinging to his mom on the side of the road. Veterinarians nursed her back to life, but realized that she likely wouldn’t survive without a mom.

Enter Hantu. The beautiful dog has no puppies of her own, but her maternal instinct kicked in when she met Poncho and the two are now inseparable.
