Dog Playing With Bear Cub Is Too Adorable For 2020

The Alaskan malamute adopted the baby bear, who was found in a weak condition earlier this year.

There’s cuteness bruin in Russia.

Video of an Alaskan malamute playing with a female bear cub at a Siberian zoo in Irkutsk, Russia, on Wednesday will make your day ― or even your year, given what the world is going through.

Rommi the dog adopted Andreyka, a 10-month-old bear who was “found in a weak condition,” Reuters reported.

Play-fighting will help condition the bear for her eventual return to the wild, NBC’s Dallas-Fort Worth affiliate reported.

Rommi the dog and Andreyka the bear wrestle. The play-fighting will help restore the cub to health for an eventual return to the wild.
