The cub and the retriever have reportedly been friends since they were taken care of by the same golden retriever mother.

According to the BBC, the tiger cub and several other species were “milked by the puppies’ mother after the eight cubs — including Siberian tigers, a white tiger, spotted hyenas and an African lion‚ were abandoned by their mothers.”
“The cubs have grown up together and have become close.”
Wouldn’t the world b great if we could all accept each other like animals do!
