After watching this jaguar jump on this tiny dog, the ending is not what I expected

When visitors first see the large wild cat wrestling the small dog to the ground, they might think they are about to see the dog’s last moments in life. However, the activity between these two animals is all in fun because the jaguar and the little Jack Russell terrier are best friends.
“Jag” the Jaguar was brought to the Akwabaa Lodge and Predator Park in South Africa after he was found orphaned in the wild. The young cat looked to his caretaker as his foster mom, but the park rangers knew that he would need a companion for the early months of his life. Instead of another cat, though, Jag ended up with the most unlikely buddies: a small dog named Bullet.

It was a match made in heaven. Layla, the facility owner and Jag’s caretaker, notes, “Every night Jag needed comfort so he took me in as a mom. And as I could not let him sleep with me all the time, I put Bullet with him. These two struck it off straight away. They don’t leave each other alone, they feed together, sleep together, do everything together. They are like brothers.”
As Jag grew older and bigger, he needed to move to his own enclosure, and he and Bullet would have to be separated. Layla states, “We separated the two of them and it was a disaster. The jaguar cried for twenty-four hours and the dog sat at the gate without moving.”
The two best friends were quickly reunited, and now spend their days at the nature preserve together, playing and lounging around in harmony. “The dog is the dominant one,” Layla explains.
“The jaguar obviously has more power, so if he is hurting him [the dog] or anything, the dog will growl or bark, and the jaguar knows when to stop.”
What a delightful duo! Here’s to many more years of their friendship full of love and respect.
