Ruuxa is a cheetah cub at the Safari Park in San Diego, CA. She may be selected as a cheetah ambassador for the park, and ambassadors are paired with domestic dogs such as Raina the Rhodesian ridgeback. Raina’s comfort in domestic situations will help Ruuxa to feel comfortable as well in new or public surroundings. Watch them wrestle, cuddle and play!
