But tragically, Osman isn't the only orphan to be roaming the streets with her four-legged friend. There are dozens of children like Osman here.

These orphans drew the particular attention ofSam Edmonds, an Australian photographer who fights for animal rights. It was while he was crossing a park in Dhakathat Sam noticed 10 children who seemed to live in the park. They were constantly begging people for money and food and shared everything they got with their dogs who lived beside them.And for every child, there was a dog alongside them.

The photographer decided to spend a week with the children and their canine companions to better understand their way of "life". As the week panned out, Sam took a series of portraits of all the orphan-canine bonds. He told the siteBored Panda:

These portraits show the strength, resilience and most of all, the camaraderie between these orphaned kids and the dogs they have adopted. The boys were not told to pose – they entered the frame with their favorite companion and the shutter was released. What these portraits speak about is the ability of these kids – so socioeconomically deprived – to shine as an exemplary of companionship between these two species.
