Depressed Cute Dog Made A Pet Rat His Animal Best Friends When He Was Left Alone

This is about the amazing friendship between Osiris the Dutch Shepherd and Riff Ratt, a rat. A relationship that is unlikely to happen under normal circumstances, but well, it happened here.

Riff Ratt was only a 4-week old baby when he was rescued from the brink of death. Then Osiris helped Riff Ratt to recover back to health and he became the pet rat of the house. The dog himself being a rescue after being abandoned in a parking lot might have to do something with his kind nature.

Osiris came to the family to stay on a temporary basis, but needless to say, they instantly fell for the friendly and loving cute dog, and decided to keep him forever.

So of course he is welcoming to a fellow rescue, no matter the size or species.

With Riff Ratt, his animal best friend, partner in crime by his hide, the dynamic duo is totally inseparable despite their huge size difference. And the way they trust each other is just amazing.

Riff Ratt even welcome to climb into Osiris’s mouth and clean his teeth. That is how strong their bond is.

We have an adorable video of the two hanging out!

Initially they feared the pair wouldn’t get along. But we all know how that turned out, right?

“Riff Ratt really likes licking the inside of Osiris’ mouth. I’m sure you all are wondering if we’re afraid Osiris will eat Riff – NOPE! Osiris has helped foster and care for dozens of animals and he is the gentlest dog I’ve ever met,” their human said on Instagram.

“Seeing them care for each other and have such an unexpected friendship gives me a tiny bit of hope for the rest of the creatures on this planet — especially humans :),”
