Otter opens grooming station dogs.

A rescued otter in Palawan in the Philippines gives 'massages' to dogs.

One after the other, dogs on the farm got onto a table ledge from where the friendly otter could paw their bodies.

The otter was one of several rescued as week-old pups after their mother was killed.

Trained to survive in the wild, they were released, but then poached by illegal wildlife traders, before being saved again.

Now they often forage unleashed and free in local mangroves and rivers.
