VICTORIA, Australia (WIBW) --- This is an unbelievably cute story of differences being overcome by love.

Molly, a beagle in Australia, lost her puppies at birth, but just a few days later, she welcomed a new baby to mother. A baby possum jumped on her back and has been holding on tight ever since.

Poss, as the aptly named Critter is called, was abandoned by her mother.

The two new friends now hang out on their cattle farm in Victoria as a bonded duo. Molly even waits under the tree where Poss sleeps during the day to keep a watchful eye on her new baby.
