Five cheetah cubs, born in the US by emergency C-section last week, were left orphaned after their mother passed away.
Their mother died after the surgery at Cincinnati Zoo and specialists gave them a low chance of survival.
But five-year-old dog Blakely has stepped in to offer the cubs a snuggle buddy.
The companion dog is not only a warm furry body for the cubs, but they've also been climbing on him for exercise.
Zoo workers say the cubs are still getting round-the-clock attention, including bottle feedings every three hours.
