If there’s one thing we truly love at animals, it’s seeing the unlikely friendships that can blossom between two unfamiliar species — and dogs seem to be pretty awesome at doing just that.
These are Riff Rat and Osiris, who conquered the internet with their amazing friendship. Despite all their differences, they are inseparable. They are dynamic duo who are totally inseparable despite their huge size difference. Osiris is a 5-year-old Dutch Shepherd, while Riff Rat is as his name would suggest, a 7-month-old rat. The partners in crime can’t stand a second apart and the level of trust they have for one another is mindblowing!
The strange but endearing friendship started back then Osiris’s owners rescued 4-week-old Riff Rat. He was so fragile and small, he hadn’t yet even opened his eyes and needed to be nursed back from the brink with the use of a syringe.
Osiris himself was actually a rescue himself who was ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ in a parking lot when he was just a little pup. When the family took him in temporarily, they fell head over heels for him and decided to keep him forever — So it makes sense that Osiris would be so welcoming to a fellow rescue, no matter the size or species.
And they becomes best friends. They’re so cʟᴏsᴇ in fact that Osiris even lets Riff crawl in his mouth and clean his teeth for him!
Not only do they like to hang out and spend time together, but they’re not afraid to show affection for one another. They’re pretty much inseparable! This duo’s friendship knows no bounds.
“Seeing them care for each other and have such an unexpected friendship gives me a tiny ʙɪᴛ of hope for the rest of the creatures on this planet — especially humans :),”
“They’re so close in fact that Osiris even lets Riff crawl in his mouth and clean his teeth for him!”
The man behind it all said he is not in the least afraid that the dog will eat the rat, because he has helped the rescue so many times that he can get the epithet of the most gentle dog. It would be nice if everyone looked up to this unique couple, both humans and animals.
