You may have heard about the friendships between animals, that is common but when it comes to friendship between different species of animals, it is very special and unique. You might know that tigers and dogs are naturally friends but what if they develop an interesting friendship? Right? So here is the story of a unique friendship between three German Shepherds; their names are Hugo, Blacky, and Jenny and two Siberian tigers belonging to an endangered specie, Suria and Sunny. The place where they all live is a sanctuary located in Slovakia named Oasis. This haven provides protection to these tigers and breed them.
This sanctuary where they live was built by Yveta Irsova, back in 1999 and since then, 23 tigers were born there. At present, this sanctuary is a habitat to 28 tigers. The Siberian tiger Suria is in the sanctuary since she was born. The German Shepherds were also born there and they know each other since they were babies. That’s what makes their bond strong and special.
So it was a start to a very special friendship between three dogs, Suria, and her cub Sunny. They spend time playing with each other. They engage in play-fight but they have never caused harm to each other. They love being together. They chase each other down excitedly. Growing up together might be the reason for the empathy in their relationship. They behave as they are siblings and never caused harm to each other. According to one of the volunteers at the sanctuary Lucia Zustakova, he said seeing those amazing animals each day is so nice. Suria plays with the dogs everyday excitedly. Oasis is such a great project and an act of humanity for the tigers that are facing extinction. This friendship is quite special and amazing. These animals never stop to amaze us. This friendship breaks the stereotypes and tell us that friendship can be formed anywhere and with whomever you want to.
