For their humans, dogs will set away their fears. That is how unconditional their love is. Take this dog from Australia, for example. Last month, a video uploaded showed how a dog bravely scared a shark who was getting too close to the shore and the humans.
When Tilly sensed a threat in the waters, she did not hesitate to get there and confronted it. Thankfully, that kind of shark is not much of a threat to humans. Unlike what movies have shown to us, sharks usually do not harm humans. They are more attracted to the smell of fish blood than human blood. According to the Florida Museum, Blacktip Reef Sharks are known to bite humans swimming but do not really pose a serious threat to humans.
At most, the Blacktip Reef Shark size is no longer than five feet, which makes them much less of a threat. But despite that, Tilly knew that the shark was swimming too close to the humans. So, she decided to do something about it.
Back 2 Basics Adventures posted the video on their Instagram page. Jack Strickland of Back 2 Basics Adventures in Australia said he received the video from another camera operator.
In the video, the black shark was seen swimming in circles along the shore in Haggerstone Island, Queensland. Then, Tilly jumped into action in just a short moment and chased the shark away from the shore.
After she made the shark go away, she surveyed the beach for more threats, and thankfully, that shark was the only one. Tilly is an Australian Kelpie. Australian Kelpies are sheepdogs who are good at herding and chasing, as seen in the video.
Thankfully, Tilly was not harmed when she chased the shark away from the shore. What a brave doggo Tilly is.
