Tommy the golden retriever and Salati the leopard grew up together. Raised by humans at the Glen Afric Country Lodge, the pair are now inseparable.

The owners of the lodge, a country retreat located in Pretoria, South Africa, rescued Salati as an orphaned cub when she was just 10 months old. They had previously helped to rehabilitate other injured animals, including elephants and giraffes, so they took Salati in and walked her along with their family dog, Tommy.

“Wherever you see one, the other is right behind,” animal wrangler Richard Brooker told the photo agency.

Salati spends her days chasing after Tommy, and they find themselves snuggling up to each other after their walks. For this dynamic duo, love knows no bounds.
