Recently, Kerry McKinnon from Strathdownie in Western Victoria received a surprise from her golden retriever.
“It was quite early in the morning, and my husband yelled out to me to come to have a look at something,” Kerry told News.com.au. “I didn’t know what he was talking about at first, but then I saw this tiny baby koala snuggled on top of Asha.”
There’s no doubt that the couple was stunned. As Kerry shared, Asha did seem a little bit guilty after seeing their expression, but she insisted on keeping the baby on her back.
“I just burst out laughing. Poor Asha didn’t know what to think; she just kept looking at me with such a confused look,” McKinnon added. “She looked a bit guilty when I came out to see what was going on. Her expression was hilarious. She kept looking back at the koala bear, but she wasn’t trying to get him off her or anything. She was happy to let him snuggle into her.”
After being checked out by a vet, a local koala carer took the baby under their care until it can be released back into the wild.
