This dog was raised with the lion cubs at the compound in South Africa and is best friends with the pair. So much so that the three love to tussle and wrestle together.
In the cute video, the two cubs “charge” their canine friend and tackle him to the ground before pawing and playing with him.
The dog is never in danger as there are always the caretakers around to watch them play together and make sure that none of the three play too roughly with one another.
They look like they are all having a lot of fun together.
Eventually, when the lions have grown, they will be released into the wild. But in the meantime, they have their dog friend to play with.
