Osiris and Riff Rat are best friends despite the huge size gap. Osiris is a 3-year-old Dutch Shepherd, while Riff Rat is as his name would suggest, a 3-month-old rat. The two spend all their time together and have even a strong level of trust with Riff Rat crawling in and out of Osiris’s mouth!
This strange but endearing friendship started back then Osiris’s owners rescued 4-week-old Riff Rat. He was so small, he hadn’t yet opened his eyes and needed to be nursed back from the brink with the use of a syringe.
Osiris himself was a rescue who was abandoned in a parking lot when he was just a pup. His owners made him their foster fail. So it would stand to reason that he would take well to a fellow rescue. After all, Osiris is trained as a therapy dog, so he has a patient and has helped his owners to care for many animals.
At first, their owners were a little hesitant to introduce the pair to one another for obvious reasons, but all fears were dashed as they saw how well the two got along.
