Osiris is a 5-year-old Dutch Shepherd, while Riff Rat is as his name would suggest, a 7-month-old rat.

The Shepard dog Osiris was a rescue dog who was abandoned when he was a little pup, now he is working as a therapy dog and he has helped his owners to look after different animals throughout the years.
Riff Rat was rescued by the owners when he was 4-month-old.
When Osiris first approached Riff Rat, the owners worried that Osiris could have eaten the rat but they were surprised to find out that these 2 guys could actually get along peacefully.
Osiris likes to lick Riff Rat with his big tongue and Riff Rat seemed to enjoy the special intimate bond.
They like to hang out together on the comfortable couch.
