The senior constable became his surrogate mum after he was orphaned in the Flinders Ranges at just five months old.

Snuggled up in a pillow case pouch, he accompanied his new mum on a wide range of duties and community visits.

Retired from his policing duties, Quinn is now a resident at the Wildwood Park Sanctuary in Cambrai.
