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

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