POWELL, OH (WCMH)–We all get by with a little help from our friends. The Columbus Zoo introduced Facebook fans to an adorable new pair of friends on Friday: Emmett the cheetah cub and Cullen the puppy.

The two pals will be on view at the Animal Encounters Village.

Emmett was born at The Wilds in Cumberland and was hand-reared while being treated for pneumonia. The Zoo says he picked Cullen to be his companion dog. They will grow up together, and Cullen will help Emmett “be more confident and calm.”
