Meet Hunter and Chelsea. Hunter is a tiger and Chelsea is a dog, they are inseparable from the first meeting.
The inseparable duo are taken for walks together every day – where they play-fight, wrestle and stalk one another through the grass.
Three-month-old tiger ‘Hunter’ was born at The Farm Inn Wildlife Sanctuary in Pretoria, South Africa.
But the cute cub had to be taken away from his mother at birth when she started displaying aggressive behaviour towards him.
Now the rejected youngster has made an unlikely friend in a German Pointer puppy, just three weeks older than him.
The playful pair are looked after by student Anthea Michaletos, 22, who lives at the sanctuary.
Anthea said: “We believe that Hunter was born at a time when the female must have felt compromised in some way as she rejected him.
“Her actions toward him were threatening his survival so we intervened for the greater of his well being.”
Hunter’s lonely start in life was turned around when Anthea introduced him to her new puppy, named Chelsea.
