A scared little boy ran away screaming from a tiny puppy.

As the old saying goes, a dog is a man’s best friend, but birthday boy Camden Carroll certainly didn’t think that on March 16.

Instead of happily playing with the puppy at his grandparents’ house in Moreland, Georgia, the three-year-old sprints off around the house shouting ‘no, no’.

Unperturbed, the as the tiny Shih Tzu/Yorkshire Terrier bounds after his new friend, twisting around corners, to catch up.Camden’s mum Nikki said: “We thought it was hysterical.

“Camden has no issues feeding and petting the neighbour’s horses, but I guess a one-pound puppy is something to be scared of.

“He was scared to pet her and is not a fan of her licking his fingers.

“We had no idea he was going to take off out of the room in terror when she chased after him. She’s so tiny.”

In the end it looks as though Camden is still the sceptic when it comes to little puppies.

Nikki said: “He likes the puppy from a distance and has pet her on the head, but he still runs and screams if she chases him or sneaks up on him before he sees her.”
