These Photos Of A Golden Retriever Playing With A White Tiger Cub Are Honestly Too Adorable ????

Prepare yourself: EXTREME cuteness ahead.

The internet is freaking out about these adorable photos that just surfaced on Getty Images:

The pictures feature a Golden Retriever puppy playing with a white tiger cub in captivity at the Beijing Zoo.

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.”

Maybe human beings could learn something from the tiger and puppy friends.
