CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Zoo's cheetah cub Kris and her companion dog Remus will soon make their small-screen debut.

The Zoo's dynamic duo star in the upcoming Disney+ show "It's a Dog's Life," which profiles canines and their extraordinary jobs.

Kris, who was born on July 7, and her cheetah ambassador Remus the rescue puppy have quickly become an iconic pair at the Cincinnati Zoo. Keepers paired them up mainly for companionship, since it gives the cheetah a "surrogate 'sibling' to grow up with" and experience the world together.
