Unlikely Besties: Cheetah Cub and Dog Are Inseparable

Daisy is the most adorable cheetah cub in all the land. And here's Odie ... who is clearly not a cheetah.

"The unlikely pair have been together since right after Daisy was born," a WPTV anchor said.

"It's actually the opposite out in the wild. Dogs are actually natural enemies of the cheetah," a specialist said.

It's your modern-day Milo and Otis, except this revamp casts Milo as a much bigger feline, and Otis is no longer a pug, but an Australian Shepherd.

The two can be seen at the Florida drive-thru safari park Lion Country Safari through February.

Daisy and Odie are there to raise awareness for cheetah conservation.

Cheetahs face hunters and trappers in the wild, and even in protected areas, they're in danger because there are higher populations of larger predators, putting cheetah cubs at risk.

Big Cat Rescue says 90 percent of cheetahs die within the first three months of birth.

You can learn more about how to help cheetahs on the Cheetah Conservation Fund's website.
