Meet Armani! This 8-week old Labrador Retriever puppy has a very important job at the Dallas Zoo. He’ll be helping to raise two cheetah cubs. The cheetah is not only endangered, but apparently also a wee bit skittish in public. The folks at the Dallas zoo are hoping that Armani will help them become more at ease as they grow up.
According to a recent story on the Today Show, The 8-week-old male cheetahs Winspear and Kamau have arrived in Dallas, the zoo said, after a team of experts spent two weeks with them at their birthplace, the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Va.
The baby cheetahs weigh just 6 and 9 pounds. Wonder how long the dog will get to stay with them? They’ll eventually grow to 140 pounds and be among the fastest land animals in the world.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
