Dogs were originally used by man as hunting companions on land, so that the dog would seek out the prey and wear it down, and then the man would kill it. They’d both share in the spoils.

That’s right, this dog dives into the sea to grab hold of the shark that is languishing on the end of a rod, and drag him ashore. The shark doesn’t put up much of a fight, but then he probably didn’t expect a dog to be biting him on the head and dragging him out of the sea.

Does your dog attack any smaller creatures and bring them to you as gifts; maybe squirrels or rats? You can be fairly sure that your Chihuahua or Shih Tzu won’t be bringing you a shark anytime soon.
