A Western Australia farming family rescued a baby kangaroo whose mother was killed in a car accident. Since then, the young joey, named Dusty, is finding life on the farm very much to his liking.

“He lives on the back patio,” Ashley Stewart told ABC Rural. “We’ve actually had to go and buy a third dog bed for him to sleep in because he used to pinch one of the beds from the dogs.”

From the instant Mr. Steward brought home the orphan two years ago, the family’s golden retriever and border collie have loved “their kangaroo”.Polish cat comforts cat-Imgur

He thinks the retriever is his mum. He’s always grooming her and waiting for her to return from the fields near Esperance.

Dusty has seen wild kangaroos on the property but shows no interest. He’s too busy living the good life, with 3-4 meals a day, believing he is a dog.
