Tortoise and Golden Retriever Become Unlikely Best Friends

Christine Hill from California shared these adorable clips of the close bond between her rescued African spurred tortoise, Larry, and her lovable golden retriever, Cricket. You can see more of Larry and Cricket on their Instagram page.

“When we rescued Larry he was being attacked by other tortoises and was miserable and scared. So we brought him home with us. At first, all he wanted to do is escape and run away. Then he met Cricket, our golden retriever and they instantly became best friends. Truly best friends. He felt safe around him, and Cricket would comfort him. They hang out together, sleep together and eat together. And he’s never tried to escape again.”
