Dᴇᴘʀᴇssᴇᴅ Ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ Dog Had No One To Play With – Becomes Best Friends With A Rat
Osiris is a 5-ʏᴇᴀʀ-ᴏʟᴅ Dᴜᴛᴄʜ Sʜᴇᴘʜᴇʀᴅ, while Riff Ratt is as his name would suggest, a 7-month-old rat. The partners in ᴄʀɪᴍᴇ can’t stand a second apart and the level of trust they have for one another is mind-blowing! Riff Ratt and Osiris, the unlikely friends who have become inseparable. Tʜᴇ sᴛʀᴀɴɢᴇ but endearing friendship started back then Osiris’s ᴏᴡɴᴇʀs ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ 4-ᴡᴇᴇᴋ-ᴏʟᴅ Riff Ratt. 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 sʏʀɪɴɢᴇ.
Osiris himself was actually a ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ 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 would stand to reason that he would take well to a fellow ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ. Osiris is now a trained ᴛʜᴇʀᴀᴘʏ dog and he has helped his family look after lots of different animals over the years.
Admittedly, Osiris’ parents were really worried that the two wouldn’t be able to stand each other – or even ᴡᴏʀsᴇ, that the pooch would try to ʜᴜʀᴛ Riff in some way. After all, Osiris is a huge dog and Riff is a tiny rat.
They hit it off right away, and now they are now inseparable. In fact, they’re so close that Osiris often lets Riff Rat climb into his mouth to clean his teeth.
“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,” their human said on Instagram.
“Seeing them care for each other and have such an unexpected friendship gives me a tiny bit of hope for the rest of the creatures on this planet — especially humans :),” At first, their owners were a little apprehensive to introduce the pair to one another for obvious reasons, but all anxieties were overcome as they realized how well the two got along. In fact, the owners say that Osiris even lets the rat clean his teeth.
“They don’t want to just hang around and spend time together, but they don’t fear each other’s affections. It is rather inseparable! The bond of this duo is unlimited.” Just look at those two lovely pals who are having a great time with each other. You do not fear showing just how much you adore one another.
“Seeing them caring for each other and having such an unexpected friendship gives me a little hope for the rest of human beings on our planet.” This is the spot, oh yeah. Osiris, right there.” Osiris certainly does not care about giving these lovely tiny baths to Riff rat either. How else could you explain, he must prefer to keep his best pal clean? Even though these two chose to become pals, the owners warn the viewers of their content not to adopt a rat to be friends with your dog. Because the chances are the dog would probably ᴇᴀᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ʀᴀᴛ and not all dogs are like Osiris. In addition to that, the owners of Osiris know what they are doing as they are ʟɪᴄᴇɴsᴇᴅ animal ʀᴇʜᴀʙʙᴇʀs and experienced animal foster parents with a lot of experience.
