We have all seen odd animal friendships. YouTubers mash up videos of unlikely pairings that make our hearts melt, social media is full of cute duos and Google made a whole commercial highlighting these relationships. But this friendship may take the cake.
Meet 3-year-old therapy dog Dutch Shepard and his sidekick Riff Rat. That’s right. Those scary little animals that crawl around on the subway tracks, jump out of garbage bags and can be heard squeaking next to your feet can actually be kind of adorable. The duo has struck up quite the friendship and their owners captured their love for each other on Instagram.
Check out a few of our faves.
This is super typical. 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. See for yourself!
