Dogs are super cute and loyal and loving and caring and funny and.. OK, stop me! And koalas are adorable! Can you imagine having these two at home?
The family lives in Strathdownie, Western Virginia, Australia, and during the winter, the morning temperatures could reach 41F, which is too cold for the tiny koala. Kerry admitted that she was shocked at first, so she wasn’t very supportive of Asha:
Kerry believes dogs have a protective instinct, and her caring dog was praised as a hero for saving the little koala. “Asha definitely saved the koala’s life by keeping him warm.
He would have died out there if left alone all night.
The poor thing could have been taken by a fox or something too.”
After it was examined by a vet, the baby koala has been taken by a local carer, to watch over it until it reaches an age when it can be returned to the wild.
