Kerry said to News.com.au:

“I believe the young koala slipped out of its mother’s sack and was helpless. As soon as he saw the dogs on their beds on our back patio, he opted to cuddle up in Asha’s hair since it was warm.”

By keeping the infant koala warm, Asha had undoubtedly saved his life because there was little possibility he would have survived on his own at night and in the presence of predators.

It was difficult to try to separate them so that Joey could be taken to a secure location; the infant koala was upset because he did not want to leave his protector’s back.

Added Kerry:

“Trying to separate them wasn’t simple; the koala made a lot of noise as we tried to remove it from Asha’s back. Dogs, in my opinion, have this protective instinct. The koala resisted leaving Asha’s back.
