(CNN) – This one tugs at the heartstrings of any animal lover! A beagle in Australia has adopted a baby possum after losing her litter of puppies.

This is an unbelievably cute story of differences being overcome by love.

Molly lost her puppies at birth, but just a few days later, welcomed a new baby to mother. A baby possum jumped on her back and has been holding on tight ever since.

Poss, as the aptly named critter is called, was abandoned by her mother. The two now hang out on their cattle farm as a bonded duo.

Molly even waits under the tree where Poss sleeps during the day to keep a watchful eye on her new baby.

This is just proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover, and love can be found in the strangest of places!
