Watch This Rescued Nurse Dog Raise Baby Cheetahs! (VIDEO)

A 5-year-old Australian Shepherd named Blakely has the best job at the Cincinnati Zoo: keeping baby animals company!

Dubbed the resident “nurse dog,” Blakely serves as a foster mom to orphaned baby animals, helping to raise cheetahs, ocelots, wallabies, takins, foxes and warthogs.

A rescue himself, it’s the canine’s job to teach the infants how to properly play and socialize so they will be able to function with other animals when they’re of age.

Right now, Blakely is helping to socialize baby cheetahs whose mother died during a C-section.

You can watch some of their inter-species antics above!
