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!
