WE’VE heard of puppy love, but this is ridicu­lous!

A puppy and a two-month-old lion cub have be­come the best of friends at a zoo in Rus­sia.

The pair struck up their un­likely friend­ship after keep­ers at the Sad­gorod Zoo brought in Elza the Cen­tral Asian shep­herd puppy to keep As­tra the lion cub com­pany as she grows up.

The pals have been in­sep­a­ra­ble ever since, and like noth­ing more than run­ning around and play­ing out­side to­gether.

Of­ten, they can be found snug­gling up on the sofa and keep­ing each other warm, which is per­fect for the up­com­ing cold Rus­sian win­ter.

Elza and As­tra might just be the cutest friends we’ve ever seen. Aww!
