Everyone knows dogs are man's best friend. But a few dogs in Georgia appear to be an otter's best friend as well. Elizabeth Oxnard runs a wildlife sanctuary. One day while on a walk with her three dogs she looked back and saw that they were being followed by a river otter.

The dogs and the otter soon became best friends. Despite being natural enemies they started playing together.

The otter is now named Ootie and spends so much time with Oxnard's three dogs that it practically lives with them.
