A beagle in Victoria has adopted a baby possum as its own after losing its litter of puppies.

Molly the beagle had her puppies die at birth at a cattle property near Hamilton, but instead decided to take over the parenting of a stranded possum.

The vision of the possum riding around on Molly's back is pretty heartwarming.

Triple M's own Joseph Ogilvie spoke to Molly's owner Elle Moyle, who said it was fantastic to see.

"They've just been inseparable," she told Channel Nine.

"She's looked after it, it was abandoned.

"They're an unlikely pair! I think the possum thought that Molly was her mother and vice versa."
