Abandoned Puppies Befriend A Lonesome Giant Tortoise

Four tiny puppies were brought to a local PetSmart near Corona, California. The man who brought them said he found them on his property and wasn't able to catch the mom. He handed the four furry bundles inside a beer box. Foster mom, Andrea from 2nd Chances Rescue took the scared and shaking pups home with her. The pups were fed, given a warm bed and a safe place to sleep but even with all that, something was missing.

At Andrea's home, she also rescued a sulcata tortoise named Goliath. For the most part, Goliath was alone. The other dogs and puppies that went through Andrea's home largely ignored the eighty pound, lumbering giant.

One day when Andrea came home to care for the pups, she found one of them missing. She look all over her house and backyard fearing one of them may have gotten out or lost or picked up. What she found instead were the puppies inside his hutch, snuggling with the Goliath.

Since that day, the pups and their great big friend have gone everywhere together. The pups were happier knowing they were safe with Goliath - and Goliath? Well, he came out of his shell.
