Great Dane plays tug of war with tiny Chihuahua

Chihuahuas are known for having a ‘big dog’ attitude, with huge personalities to match.

But one tiny chi, called Zino, even thought he had big dog strength when he took on his Great Dane brother in a game of tug of war.

The average chihuahua weighs between 1.5kg and 3kg, with male Great Danes weighing up to 90kg.

But the size difference didn’t stop Zino latching onto the end of the rope toy hanging from a much bigger Diesel’s mouth.

The video, posted by Tamaradockx on TikTok, has since reached over 1.6 million views and viewers couldn’t help but be impressed with Zino’s courage and determination.
