An unbelievable speedy tortoise
has made an unlikely good friend to play chase with – an American

The energetic buddies met one another whereas they had been ready to be

the US, and at the moment are inseparable.
Fortunately, the odd couple had been adopted collectively by one household
– and are at the moment having fun with life enjoying chase within the again
backyard of their endlessly house.
Within the footage, the African spurred tortoise, known as Sheldon,
is seen shifting at outstanding pace because it chases his good friend
Dolly, an American pit bull
terrier, round its proprietor’s backyard.
Alongside the clip, the animal shelter wrote: “Sheldon, an
eight year-old sulcata tortoise, and Dolly, a three-year-old
American Pit Bull Terrier, had been each rescued from HSNT and are
now greatest pals.”
In keeping with their proprietor, the pair like to play chase collectively,
though Sheldon is much less eager on the ball video games Dolly
consistently tries to tempt him with.
The clip, which has gone viral with greater than 647,000 views,
was filmed by one of many shelter’s vets, Dr. Cynthia Jones, who
adopted the 2 animals.
She stated Sheldon solely performs chase with Dolly and never her different
pet, a Labrador retriever.
