Ralph Waldo Emerson stated, “The one approach to have a good friend is to be one.”  Apparently, these two lovely animals perceive what which means as a result of though they’re wildly totally different, they love one another anyway.

The unlikely buddies, a pet and a tiger cub, make an odd pair, being that they’re opposites in each method, but they’re as shut as siblings.  To not point out, they might not be any cuter.


The Bengal tiger cub, Hunter, and the German shorthair pointer pet, Chelsea, met at a Wildlife Sanctuary in Pretoria South Africa.  Their friendship started after Hunter, who was born at Farm Inn Wildlife, was taken from his mom for his personal security as she was aggressive towards him.

In response to his caretaker, Anthea Michaletos, his mom should have felt compromised indirectly and rejected him.  The cub was then offered by native breeders and joint house owners of the Matotoland Kennel, Francois vd Walt, and Jacob Cilliers to the sanctuary.  It was there that he met Chelsea. The 2 are roughly three weeks aside in age, about three months outdated, respectively.  .


In response to Athena, regardless that their friendship is uncommon, it’s good that they’ve one another.  The little cuties by no means must be alone and have a continuing playmate.  Particularly for Hunter, who as an solely cub, wanted to study life abilities.

Sadly, the sanctuary plans to separate the younger buddies once they attain six months outdated, for the security of Chelsea.  They have to do that as a result of Hunter doesn’t know his personal energy and doesn’t retract his claws when he performs along with her.  However for now, they like to spend all their time collectively and appear unhappy when they’re separated.


They roll within the grass, wrestle, stalk one another, and frolic within the solar simply as all finest tiger and doggy buddies ought to.  The 2 are merely essentially the most lovely playmates ever.

Please share the story of their unlikely friendship with your loved ones and buddies.
