Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water comes a viral video you have to see to believe.
Whether they’re helping out their fellow furry friends or human companions, man’s best friend is well known for being a hero in many different ways. Yet every so often a dog will have a little too much hubris for their own good and get themselves into some pretty sticky situations.
In the following video filmed at a beach on the Torres Strait in Australia, we see one of these extremely daring dogs jump into the wild blue see to take on a pretty terrifying opponent. The clip shows a tiny dog jumping into the water after spotting a large tiger shark and swims out to try and take the shark down.
Now, if you’ve ever found yourself on a Shark Week binge, you probably know that most sharks don’t bite humans or other land-dwelling mammals when they happen to come across them. The tiger shark, on the other hand, is an exception who is known to be quite a dangerous predator and is often found in surfing and swimming waters in places like Australia and Hawaii.
Luckily for this brave little dog, the tiger shark wasn’t in the mood for a showdown that day, so the dog decided to call it quits and swim back to his owner on shore.
