Jag the jaguar and Bullet the Jack Russell Terrier are a dynamic duo unlike any other.
When Jag came to Akwaaba Lodge, a predator park and sanctuary in South Africa, he immediately bonded with the facility owner, Leila.
However, knowing Jag needed more than just human company, Leila introduced Jag to another sanctuary resident, a Jack Russell Terrier named Bullet.
The two became fast friends.

When it came time for Jag to move to a larger enclosure, he was temporarily separated from his canine pal. The results were disastrous. Both Jag and Bullet were despondent, and it became clear to facility staff that the small dog and the big cat needed to be together.
Bullet rejoined Jag in his new digs, and the two have been together since as the most unlikely friends.
Who says cats and dogs can't get along? Not these besties, that's for sure.
