FURRY FRIENDS

First News - - FRONT PAGE -

ASHA the golden re­triever is a real hero hound af­ter she saved the life of a cute baby koala – by giv­ing it a cud­dle.

The cute dog, who lives in Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia, gave her own­ers a shock when she walked into the house with a tiny koala snug­gled on top of her. It’s thought that the joey fell out of her mum’s pouch in the night and snug­gled up with Asha, who slept out­side on the porch, to keep warm. With tem­per­a­tures in the area dip­ping be­low 5°C it’s doubt­ful the koala would have made it through the night with­out Asha’s cosy fur to cud­dle up in.

The aban­doned joey is now be­ing looked af­ter by a lo­cal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion worker and will be re­leased back into the wild when it’s ready.
