'GMA' Presents the Week in Viral Animal Cuteness, Starring a Shark-Biting Dog and Baby Giraffe Named Hope (VIDEO)

A baby giraffe on 'Good Morning America'Lara Spencer delivered an animal-centric version of Pop News Friday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), covering stories about dogs attacking a shark and a giraffe born with backwards feet.

The first story is based on a YouTube clip from Australia where a couple of dogs attempt to herd sharks in shallow water. One of the dogs didn't like what he saw and bit one of the sharks. "Happy to report the dog was fine, the shark swam away intact, perhaps his ego a little bruised," said Spencer.

The second story was about a giraffe named Hope in the Topeka Zoo in Kansas born with hyperextended fetlocks, which means that it's back feet were folded back and pointed the wrong way. "With the help of the veterinarians there, she defied the odds," Spencer said. "She will live a long, long life." The giraffe was fitted with special wrapped shoes and was up and walking like a champ.
