dog and rescued rat are unlikely bffs

Taxidermist Mickey Alice Kwapis saved a rat she named Riff Ratt from becoming snake food when he was just weeks old. Little did she know, her dog Osiris – a Dutch Shepherd and the new family member would become the best of friends and viral superstars on Instagram.

Riff Ratt was bottle fed for two weeks after Mickey brought him home. Osiris would sit by their side, licking the extra milk off the baby rodent. Their bond is so strong that Osiris lets Riff Ratt in 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”.

They also play and snuggle and do what best friends do. “They’re super photogenic, and they’re just so sweet”, gushed Mickey.
