Nervous Cheetahs Are Being Paired With Support Dogs, And It’s Adorable.
For a long time now, humans have been using animals as support companions for various situations. Animals have proven to be helpful to us in stressful and/or traumatic situations. Believe it or not, we're not the only ones who need their support.
Animals need support from other animals as well, especially cheetahs. The wild cats are naturally born extremely shy, which can prevent them from mating. For many years now, however, support dogs have been assigned to cheetahs to help them cope with the anxiety and stress!
By now, many people are fully aware of animals who support humans.
They help keep humans calm when they have anxiety or keep them company when they're emotional and/or depressed.
There have been several different support animals, including pigs, turkeys and ducks.
The most popular support animals are our friendly canine companions.
But did you know that humans weren't the only ones who needed the support?
We're not the only ones who need animals to assist us in stressful situations. Animals need emotional support from other animals as well!
Cheetahs, for example, actually need a lot more help than you can imagine.
Captured cheetahs actually tend to suffer from many anxiety-related conditions. Oddly, the best way to help the cheetahs cope with the anxiety is by pairing them up with their own support dog.
Andy Stardust recently posted photos of a baby cheetah and his support Labrador pup onto Twitter.
The two animals are from the San Diego Zoo and look like they've already grown to be the best of friends.
