The video below may look at first like the dog’s days are over as a large wild animal appears to go in for a kill. However, things are not always what they seem.
Some people may find this disturbing but the dog and the jaguar on the video are actually best of friends. This unusual pair has an uncanny connection that only the two of them can understand – and it’s beautiful.
Meet the young jaguar named Jag and Bullet the Jack Russell!
When the big cat came in at the Akwaaba Lodge in South Africa, the volunteers noticed that he was lonely and in desperate need of company. The facility owner knew exactly who was going to be the perfect creature to be with Jag – Bullet the Jack Russell.
“Every night he needed comfort and he took me as a mom,” the owner said. However, she could not let the jaguar sleep with her all the time and when that happens, Jag would get really lonely. So she decided to put the dog with the cat and the two immediately bonded like brothers.
The two are inseparable. They don’t leave each other and they sleep and do anything together 24 hours a day. According to the owner, the two have not been separated since they were introduced to each other.
When it was clear that the jaguar was getting bigger, the owner separated them and put Jag in his own enclosure. However, the separation did not go well for the dog as he was seen crying all day.
Watch the video below and witness the kind of love only Jag and Bullet can understand.
Playing rough and tumble with a jaguar would leave most thinking this dog’s chance of survival is slim. But the unlikely dog and big cat pairing are best of friends – playing, sleeping and even eating together 24 hours a day. Bullet the Jack Russell dog became pals with the jaguar, fondly known as ‘Jag’, after he was moved to the Akwaaba Lodge in South Africa.
