A dog have sadly lost her babies but luckily, she was able to embrace a whole new kind of family.

Molly, the beagle, was having a difficult time after she lost her litter of puppies at birth. Then, one day, an adorable baby possum came to visit and before long they developed a special bond.

The little possum was obviously ready to make friends. She happily jumped on Molly's back and that soon became a thing for the duo.

Molly's owners, Elle and Sara Moyle, told 9News that the pair have now become inseparable. The animals may not be of the same species, but they clearly have a connection that's hard to miss.

In this video, it is quite obvious that the friends enjoy each other's company. Whenever the possum gets the chance, he climbs on Molly's back and gets real comfortable as the dog prances around. 

Sara described the animals as an 'unlikely pair', adding that Poss, the possum, probably thought Molly was her mother and vice-versa.

Chilling on Molly's back was not just a gesture of affection from the possum. Apparently, the smaller animal may have a little trouble making her way around the Moyles' cattle property so Poss prefers to hitch a ride on Molly's back.

Sara said:

It's certainly uplifted her mood, they both needed each other I think so it's been a fantastic relationship.

As a nocturnal animal, Poss spends most of her days sleeping in the trees but she is never forgotten by Molly, who apparently keeps an eye on her throughout the day. 

Elle explained:

Molly just sits under the tree where she's sleeping and just waits for her.

No one is sure how long the possum plans to stay on the property, but we have a feeling that Molly isn't too eager to say goodbye to this particular guest.

As for Poss, we sure hope her strong friendship with the beagle will inspire her to spend more time on the Moyles property.
