Today’s Unlikely Friendship: Cheetahs and Dogs

The San Diego Zoo has four pairs of Cheetahs and dogs who live together. Why? Cheetahs hate each other. They're like sorority girls who look alike but they actually detest one another's company. Sitll, the cheetah's need some company. So when the cheetah is about 3 months old they pair it up with a dog that is about 6 months old, so that the dog is the alpha in the relationship. Within about a week they are inseparable.
The San Diego Zoo has four pairs of Cheetahs and dogs who live together. Why? Cheetahs hate each other. They’re like sorority girls who look alike but they actually detest one another’s company. Sitll, the cheetah’s need some company. So when the cheetah is about 3 months old they pair it up with a dog that is about 6 months old, so that the dog is the alpha in the relationship. Within about a week they are inseparable. Sleeping together, licking each other’s ears, yada yada. The dogs are best when they’re the upbeat exuberant kind. A happy dog apparently keeps the cheetahs from going mental and freaking out about every little thing. Here’s the video.

This cute couple and others are featured in a book called “Unlikely Friendships.”
