Here’s a heartwarming story of how a tortoise and four tiny pups share a beautiful friendship despite their differences.
One day, a man found four puppies on his property. He picked them up but unfortunately, he wasn’t able to catch their mom. He brought all four pups to a PetSmart store in California, inside a small cardboard box. He handed them to a lady named Andrea.
Andrea, being a pet lover, did not hesitate to care for them. She shares that when she brought them home, they were all afraid. But eventually, they all warmed up after she fed and gave them toys. Andrea already had several pooches running around her house, but not one of them had a close relationship with her rescued Sulcata Tortoise named Goliath.
One day, Andrea noticed that one of the puppies was missing and so she started to panic. After looking around the yard, she finally saw the puppy all snuggled up with the 80-pound Goliath inside his hutch. She was relieved and amazed to see the puppy and tortoise together.
Moments later, she realized that all four puppies liked playing with the tortoise. She took her camera and snapped a photo, trying to capture the bond they had. The puppies adore Goliath and they somehow have found a sense of security being with him.
Andrea shares that the old dogs in her house had always been quite scared of Goliath and so they would ignore him. So it was such a beautiful sight to see the new puppies giving kisses to him and curling up with him under his shell. They share snacks, play, and sleep together. They are indeed inseparable.
Andrea has also noticed that Goliath would often come out of his shell, compared to before and that’s probably because he is thrilled to see the puppies as well.
