Who says a Rottweiler and a panther can't be friends?
Playing in the snow is a favorite pastime of many cold-weather dogs like Rottweilers, St. Bernards, Samoyeds, and other thick fur pups. These funny animals can't help but roll around in the snow, letting it cover their faces and fur. But, these dog breeds aren't the only ones to enjoy good alpine snow. Sometimes they bring along their humans or even other furry friends. Let this Rottweiler and black leopard snow you how it's done in this trending TikTok video.
Rottweiler & Black Leopard Snow Playtime
Rottweilers are pretty big dogs that are known for being fierce. Though I think big cats like Luna the Pantera may have the doggo breed beat when it comes to fierceness. This wild cat and her funny dog, Venza, live together in Siberia. Luna was rescued from a Siberian Zoo by a Russian woman named Victoria when her mother rejected her. If you're wondering: in Russia, as long as you owned an exotic cat before January 2020, it is legal to have them as pets. So the cute animals now live together with their humans playing in the snow and being BFFs.
The black panther has no fearfulness of the snow, even though it is not its natural habitat. The cute cat runs, tumbles, and flies through the snow with her very own Rottweiler puppy, proving she can be a snow leopard if she wants to be. In the aww-worthy video, Luna gently paws at the doggo getting him to play with her. This duo going viral on social media makes for quite the pair, running around and playing in the snow. Though the best part may be the first time the Rottie tries to get up out of the snow, and Luna places her paw on his back as if to say, "we are staying here."
The pair looks so cute sitting on the porch together. At first glance, the cat looks like it could be a Maine coon, but on closer inspection, you can definitely tell that it is a panther!
The collar on the panther just kills me, it almost makes Luna look like a domestic pet. The panther covered head to toe in snow, pawing around with his Rottie best friend, may just be the cutest thing I have seen all day. It is important to remember that wild cats like Luna are still wild animals at heart, even though they have been domestically raised. Such animals should always be treated with care.
