This pup that lives in Central China is named Si Mao, which is Mandarin for Four Hairs.

While the family wasn’t looking, Si Mao had an afternoon snack and scarfed down her owner’s entire lunch!

She knew she was in trouble so she fled to her neighbor’s house…which so happens to be the Wuhan Zoo.

She managed to find sanctuary in the big cat enclosure, and that’s when she snuggled up to the four-year-old lioness Zhen Zhen.

“Zhen Zhen is a very motherly cat and took the dog under her wing and even let it share her food. The dog was very lucky because Zhen Zhen is very gentle. If she’d tried that with the tigers she’d have ended up as a snack,” said zoo spokesman Li Kangbing.
