Kerry McKinnon lives in Australia with her dog, Asha, and their lives are never boring. But one morning, she saw something that even surprised her! Her husband yelled to come look at something, and their Golden Retriever was sitting outside with a baby koala perched atop her back.
“She kept looking back at the koala but she wasn’t trying to get him off her or anything. She was happy to let him snuggle into her,” Kerry told News.com.au.
Asha is being hailed a hero for her role in saving a baby koala.
“It was quite early in the morning, and my husband yelled out to me to come have a look at something”
“I didn’t know what he was talking about at first but then I saw this tiny koala snuggled on top of Asha”
“I think the baby koala fell out of his mum’s pouch and didn’t know what to do”
“He would have died out there if left alone all night. The poor thing could have been taken by a fox or something, too”
The tiny koala was checked out by a vet, and a local carer is watching over the baby until it’s old enough to be released back into the wild.
Only in Australia, right? What a story! 😀
