How often do you come across a dog who’s friends with a rat? Not a lot so that makes this dog named Osiris and his rat best friend Riff Rat a pretty incredible case. The two are so closely bonded together that the former allows the latter to clean his teeth, and that makes them even more special. You don’t see this kind of trust between two animals of different species very often.
Osiris is a full-time therapy dog while his buddy Riff Rat was on the brink of death at only four weeks old. Riff Rat was rescued and nursed back to health through the efforts of some really amazingly compassionate people.
If it weren’t for the efforts of kind humans, we wouldn’t be seeing this beautiful friendship between Osiris and Riff Rat today.
“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,” writes their owner on @osirisandriff Instagram account.
