Why are there dogs in some zoos’ cheetah exhibits?

I saw some really cute pictures, but I’m stumped as to why they’re a thing.

I too have seen those pictures, and they are adorable. Cheetahs that live in captivity tend to be really anxious, and some zoos pair them with happy-go-lucky dogs hoping they’ll teach the cheetahs to be more relaxed. They can even help them cope with hard times, like having to have surgery. True heroes, we have no choice but to stan.

Companion animals, so they have friends. It helps most of all to prevent depression which can lead to not eating and getting sick.
📷 This affectionate bond between cat and dog on display at zoos across the country is a way to promote the life-saving role dogs play for cheetahs in the wild. ... Because the Anatolian Shepherd is a big dog with a big bark, farmers use them to scare cheetahs off their land, as opposed to trapping or shooting them.
