We have all seen unusual pairings in the animal world, but for some reason I just can not get enough of how cute this is.

A white German Shepard came to the rescue of an abandon baby opossum and cared for him like her own. I cannot get over how cute the baby opossum was clinging to the side of the dog . For the record I normally don't think opossums are very cute, but the sad story of how he was clinging to his mom who had died after being hit by a car just broke my heart.

Once again we as humans can all take a lesson from the animal kingdom, who at times show more compassion and caring to other animals, than some humans do to each other.
