Cheetah and dog become friends

Cheetah's normally have a litter of three to five so when only one cub is born, the mother usually rejects it.  It's thought that she does this because only one cub would not survive in the wild with her.  Introducing a cheetah cub to a domestic dog has been done before so when Ruuxa, a six week old cheetah, was abandoned by it's mother; she was introduced to a seven week old puppy named Raina.  They have since become best of friends and it's hoped that the friendship will carry through to adulthood.  Ruuxa and Raina
