A Surprisingly Quick Tortoise Almost Keeps Up With a Playful Dog as They Chase One Another Around the Yard

A surprisingly quick-moving sulcata tortoise named Sheldon almost keeps up with a playful Pit Bull named Dolly as they happily chase one another around the yard of their new home together. Both animals had been rescued by Humane Society of Northern Texas in Fort Worth, Texas.

Their owner says they love to play chase like in this video and that Dolly even tries to get Sheldon to play with her favorite ball, though so far he’s had no interest. Look how speedy Sheldon is! These two are great examples of just how amazing rescued animals are and how friendship doesn’t see species!
