This cute baby possum is Poncho and he found the love he needed in one of the most unexpected places you can imagine. With that being said, let’s see how his incredible story starts.
19. Living The Good Life
Poncho was living the good life. His mother would carry him around the forest and they would eat berries and other fruits together, until one day when something terrific happened!
18. Highway Traffic
Everything turned for the worse when Poncho’s mother wanted to cross over the road and a reckless driver hit her. Luckily, Poncho wasn’t hurt but he was heartbroken. The poor baby possum didn’t have a loving mother anymore…
Little Poncho was now an orphan. He didn’t have anyone to care for him and his mother didn’t show him how to fend off for himself. The odds were stacked against him, but then some strangers found Poncho and decided to help him.
16. Saddest Possum Ever
Some strangers were driving on the highway when they saw the sad possum clinging to his dead mother. The strangers couldn’t tell for how long Poncho was there, but they knew they had to do something about it.
15. Paying A Visit To The Vet
Poncho was not looking good and the strangers took him to the vet for a checkup. Fortunately, the vet concluded that Poncho is healthy and that he is only heartbroken about his mother’s death. This is not the only thing that the vet said…
14. Poncho Needs A Mother
The vet said that even though Poncho might be okay when it comes to health, he still needs a mother to look out for him. The baby possum didn’t know how to take care of himself and the strangers needed to find an adoptive mother for him.
13. Looking For A Mother
Knowing that Poncho’s chances of survival by his own were slim, one of the strangers took the poor baby possum to his home. This is when the unexpected happened because Poncho quickly befriended one of the stranger’s pets!
12. Meeting Hantu
Hantu is a German Shepard who for some unknown reason, felt a connection with the baby possum. Seeing this, everyone was left in awe! Would you ever expect a dog to care so much for a possum?

9. Maternal Instincts
From the looks of it, Hantu’s maternal instincts kicked in when she saw the sad little possum. The most incredible thing about this is that Hantu never had any puppies of her own, but she knew exactly how to take care of the baby possum.
8. Healthy Food
Even though Hantu cared for Poncho, the dog didn’t know how to teach him how to collect food on his own. However, the stranger who found Poncho on the highway made sure to feed him healthy food in order to make sure that Poncho grows big and strong.
7. Special Relationship
Poncho started getting bigger only weeks after staying with Hantu. The healthy food and the mother’s love that Hantu was giving Poncho was helping him grow up. Although, this is a win-win situation because Hantu was happy to have Poncho around.

Hantu is so protective of Poncho that no one can even get close to him without her permission! Isn’t this how protective mothers get? Nonetheless, seeing them ride around the backyard always brought a smile on people’s face.
3. Full Grown Possum
Even though Poncho grew up and he wasn’t a baby anymore, Hantu still carried him on her back. The bond between these two is powerful and nothing is ever going to split them apart!
