This is the funny moment captured on camera featuring a turtle fighting with a Husky dog in China. In the clip, filmed in Ma'anshan city in eastern China's Anhui Province in October 2017, we see the Husky towering over the moving turtle and barking at it, using its paw to drag it around the floor. To which the brave turtle stretches its head out and tries to bite the loud intruder. Hilarious!

Both dogs and turtles make wonderful pets, but our canine companions can hurt their reptilian housemates when left unsupervised with them, because dogs and tortoises are not a predictable mix. In some cases, the family dog that has never hurt a fly often becomes overwhelmed with an irresistible urge to chew on the tortoise. You have to make sure that any interactions between your dog and your tortoise are closely supervised and make sure the tortoise is too large to be swallowed and teach your pooch some basic manners to prevent him from using Shelley as a chew toy!

Even the most docile dogs have a natural prey drive and a hefty dose of curiosity about new things. When a pooch sees a turtle, which is likely no larger than around 12 inches in size, the little reptile may appear to be a moving toy or potential prey to the dog.

So when this frisky Husky decided to pick a fight with Shelly, the brave turtle went attack mode at the dog, stretching its neck and opening its mouth to try and bite the vocal canine! Hopefully, these two found a sound compromise and nobody got hurt!
