– At Turtle Back Zoo, a cheetah and an emotional support dog are best of friends.
– They have formed a beautiful bond since they were just a few weeks old.
– The cheetah and the dog are actually part of the zoo’s…
The dog is a Labrador retriever named Bowie. He is friends with the cheetah named Nandi. The two have been together since they were only a few weeks old so that explains why these two have a wonderful bond. They are reportedly inseparable and they do a lot of things together like playing in the snow and sharing their toys.
The two are part of a program that pairs cheetahs with emotional support dogs. This is because cheetahs are naturally skittish so the emotional support dog actually builds the cheetah’s confidence. The dog also helps Nandi’s anxiety.
The program also aims to educate people about protecting the big cats because now, there are around 7,000 cheetahs left in the wild in Africa.
