I thought this was honestly so great. I love dogs, I have a little white Yorkie who means the world to me in so many ways.
I read about this one dog from Australia that is currently watching over baby tiger cubs at the Cincinnati zoo. His name is Blakely, and he's had a history of watching over exotic species of animals in the past, including cheetahs, warthogs, skunks and even foxes. They are entrusting Blakely to watch over these baby tiger cubs, because the Malayan tiger population is currently below 500. And they don't want anything happening to them at all.
So why not entrust man's best friend with this incredible and prestigious task?!
I'm not sure my little guy would be able to be around lions at all - He'd probably want to fight them, and I don't honestly think that would go over too well. But he is a frisky little dude, and I bet he'd give it his all!
I'd love to hear from you if your dog has ever done anything exotic like this.
