When animals are born, they need guidance. Usually, these animals are raised by their mothers or fathers. Gorillas carry their babies on their backs and kangaroos carry their joeys in their pouches. After months or even years, the babies are all grown up and they are ready to leave their mothers and fathers to live their own lives. However, not all animals raise their babies in the same way.

Cheetahs, for example, are known as living in isolation. They do not congregate as a group and live together in groups, but they live alone. Those cheetahs that are in captivity are being helped by dogs because they help bring the cheetahs out of their shell. If they don’t have a mother to help them, the cheetah needs guidance and a dog is there to provide that.
