SAN DIEGO — A 6-week-old cheetah cub at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park was introduced to his lifelong companion — a 7-week-old puppy.

The young cheetah, Ruuxa, was chosen to be raised as an animal ambassador after he was rejected by his mother and had to be hand-raised by zoo keepers.

This video shows the cheetah cub and puppy, a Rhodesian ridgeback named Raina.

The puppy will be raised with the cheetah and serve as his lifelong companion.
