The woman rescued Beemer from his mother’s pouch after she was killed by a BMW motorcycle.
Beemer is now hopping happily around Julz’s backyard and in and out of the doggy door of her house – which he makes a bit bigger by kicking every now and then to accommodate his growing body.
He shares the yard and house with Julz’s other pets – Woolly the merino sheep, dogs Ned, Apples and Cider and Petie the cat.
“I love him and he loves me,” Julz said. “It would break my heart if he ran away but I don’t think he will. He’s just like part of the family, he’s like my son.”
