Cheetahs Love Dogs | Animal Friendship | Love Nature

(upbeat music) – [Narrator] At the
Columbus Zoo in Powell Ohio, a yellow Lab named
Carlyle has made friends with African cheetahs. – I think it’s really cool
how they are raised together, and how they’re frenemies, basically. – [Narrator] In Africa, cheetahs
are the enemy of the dog. Dogs are used to guard livestock
against cheetah attacks. But here at the zoo, a
friendship has been nurtured. – The first time you see
a dog in with a cheetah, you’re like, “What are they doing? “This is crazy!” And a lot of people
actually ask that question, “Why are they in together?” – [Zoo Worker] I’m sure you
guys are probably wondering why we have a yellow lab up here on stage. He is actually best friends with Edward. We do a lot of traveling
with our cheetahs. And being naturally skittish cats, Carlyle kind of helps calm them down and lets them know that,
“Hey, this is okay.” – He’s traveled the country. He’s probably been to more states in the United States than most people. – [Narrator] A day in the life of Carlyle has him interacting with a
lot of different species, like these leopard cubs, but
his most surprising companions are animals that dogs have
evolved to guard against. It’s his DBFs, the fastest
land mammals on the planet, the cheetahs. (heavy music) Like dogs, male cheetahs are quite social, and in nature will often sit together, living in pairs, or even trios, as adults. This desire for brotherhood
is the main reason Carlye the Lab’s extraordinary friendship with the cheetahs works. – He was raised with them, as a puppy, and the cheetahs were cubs. – [Narrator] Four years
ago, before Carlyle was part of her life, Suzi got a call
to adopt four cheetah cubs. – [Suzi] These cheetahs
kind of landed in my lap, so I didn’t have a lot
of time on my hands. I wanted to get a puppy,
as soon as possible, to start the process. – [Narrator] Susan soon
found a breeder with puppies, but it took some convincing. – The puppy she offered
me was not Carlyle. Carlyle was her pride and joy,
that she was going to keep, because she was gonna go on to show him. But he was the one I wanted. So I begged, a little, and pleaded, and the next day, Chris
called me and said, “I’m so excited about the
life Carlyle’s gonna lead.” So she let me have him. Yeah, it didn’t take long before I realized how special he was. He was just this chunk of love. – [Narrator] This little
puppy is actually Coby, a new addition to the zoo. Like Carlyle, his job is to grow up with, and help socialize, a
new coalition of cubs. At just six weeks of age, Coby is introduced to
the 21-day-old cheetahs. – The sooner you get
’em in with the litter, the sooner they bond, and when they bond, the cheetah thinks that’s its sibling. There’s your brother. (laughs) – Cheetahs are very
skittish animals, naturally. – [Suzi] You can see how,
kind of, skittish they are, a little bit nervous. In time, the dog will
take that out of them. – They’re gonna look at his body language, and read his body language,
and see his comfort level, and they’re gonna go, “Oh, this is great, “I can deal with this.” – [Suzi] The nipping is 100% play. – [Narrator] Like Coby and these cubs, Carlyle was raised with
his cheetah brothers. But can this kinship last, or will bloodier instincts prevail? – I’ll never know if they love each other, ’cause it’s one of
those internal behaviors that I don’t know, but I do see, there’s definitely that bond
that they like to be together. – [Narrator] Since the lifespan
of a cheetah in captivity and a canine is similar,
Carlyle and the cheetahs will remain together for
the rest of their lives. – They’ll definitely be together, their entire life, and be friends. – Everybody thinks a dog
is just man’s best friend. I can assure you, Carlyle’s definitely cheetah’s best friend, too. (electric guitar chord)

    I’ve read that cheetahs are some of the few wild animals that can be domesticated, on contrast with other big cats that might snap one day and decide they’re gonna have you for lunch. Cheetahs are very stable, smart and loyal.

    Yo!!! Take a good look at the Cheetah in the thumbnail. I swear, I thought someone was too close to the camera and was picking up some clothe or something

  44. Angel of Death says:

    Carlyle ran with the stick but the cheetah just trotted behind him and tapped him on the back. A game the dog could never win. I know how that feels.

  64. Ria Rio says:

    All the people saying that cheetahs will hurt/kill the dogs don't know anything about cheetahs.
    I suggest you to watch Dolph C Volker's videos about cheetahs.
    They're amazing and can be easily domesticated.
    And now isn't a bad time as they're going extinct.

  69. LordOmnissiah says:

    It’s actually not that strange. Cheetahs were used as hunting animals by royalty in ancient times along with dogs. The dogs superior stamina was used to wear the prey down and then the cheetah was released to deliver the kill to the exhausted target.
