We are sure that animals of various species can be friends.
Sometimes it seems completely illogical, but the heart wants what it wants.
And this story is a clear proof of this.
The three-year-old shepherd dog Osiris, who was professionally trained as a rescuer and therapist, did not want to be friends with anyone before the appearance of the rat Riff in his life.
Riff came to Osiris as a newborn and blind.
He was fed with an eye dropper and cared for constantly.
And when the dog saw how the baby was being looked after, he apparently remembered his childhood.
After all, he was found by the owners as a newborn puppy, who was left to freeze in the parking lot.
Osiris realized that this animal faced the same problem and needs love and care, because shared grief can heal.
Osiris has been involved in the therapy of both humans and other animals on many occasions.
He met with patients on a schedule.
Riff is a decorative rat.
Its size will always be large, and it may well fit into the mouth of its friend.
By the way, the dog uses a completely pedagogical approach in raising his little pet.
He is strict with him and never spoils him, but protects him from possible troubles.
