PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An adorable cheetah and his puppy pal brought their blended animal love to the KOIN 6 News studios Thursday, part of an outreach to encourage cheetah breeding.

Khayam Jr. and his puppy pal Rhino live at the Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon. The Wildlife Safari works on cheetah breeding to help boost their dwindling population. The cheetah and puppy act as ambassadors to the public to spread the word.

The Wildlife Safari is the most successful cheetah breeding center in the US and is the second-most successful in the world.
