These BFFs are all kinds of adorable.
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has introduced Emmett, a 10-week-old cheetah cub, who was hand-raised while being treated for a bout of pneumonia, to Cullen, a 7-week-old puppy, who is now the big cat’s best bud.
“Cullen will help Emmett to be more confident and calm as cheetahs are naturally skittish animals,” the zoo said in introducing the pair to the public this month.
Emmett was born at the Wilds in Cumberland, Ohio and will act as an “ambassador” for wild cheetahs. And, according to the zoo, Cullen “will be with him every step of the way.”
Every single cute step, that is.
