Mama Dog Driving Around Orphaned Opossum Is Cooler Than Your Neighborhood Soccer Mom

Pretinha became an unlikely surrogate mother for five baby opossums in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil after their mother was killed by another dog. The baby opossums were so small that their eyes were not yet open.

They would not have survived without the love and care they received from Pretinha. To them, this pup is the only mother they’ve ever known – though they might be a little confused as to why mom can’t climb trees like they do.

Just days after the babies’ arrival, you can tell that Pretinha is already falling in love with being a new mother.

The baby opossums are about a month old and enjoy exploring their tree environment – with mom Pretinha not too far away.
