In what must be one of the more unlikely friendships seen in the animal kingdom, a wild otter has befriended a pair of dogs. Enjoying rough and tumble in these heart-warming pictures, the trio became inseparable when Ottie the otter was hit by a car. The wounded 18-month old male was taken to the Sanctuary on the Sapelo in Pine Harbour, Georgia – a wildlife sanctuary caring for injured animals – where he made a full recovery. During his rehabilitation, which took several weeks, he became friends with Donor, an 11-month-old female bloodhound and Chelsea, a 13-month-old female Golden Retriever. Both dogs are residents at the independent wildlife reserve, where the animals forged their unusual partnership.
