No stranger to adrenalin, Jack was observing a small black tip shark that was swimming in shallow waters off Haggerstone Island. His partner was filming the encounter, but Jack’s dog Tilly thought the shark was a little too close to her human for comfort.
The video shows the kelpie dog leaping into action, splashing her way between the shark and her owner, then swimming into deeper water just to make sure she’d chased the ‘danger’ far away.
Good dog, Tilly, good dog.
