Video: Cheetah cub meets puppy pal

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CNN/WANE)  It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship. A cheetah cub and puppy have been paired up at the San Diego Zoo to be lifelong companions.

After the 6-week-old Cheetah was rejected by his mother and had to be raised by zoo keepers, the staff decided to pair him up with a 7-week-old Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy.

Keepers at the zoo said dogs are therapeutic to cheetahs and let them know there is nothing to fear.
