Dog Plays Surrogate Mother To Cheetah CubsPosted by Opposing Views on Tuesday, March 29, 2016

When these cheetah cubs tragically lost their mother, a proud parent of an entirely different species stepped in and saved the day:

The cheetah’s mother died after giving birth at the Cincinatti Zoo. Blakely, the Australian Shepherd, stepped in as their nanny. The companion dog has previously helped a baby takin and another cheetah. Zoo officials hope Blakely can teach these cheetahs important behavioral skills.
