Baby emu absolutely loses it the moment dog walks in

Do you have a pet emu? While emus are more uncommon in the US, in their native Australia, they are often raised as pets. Such was the case of Sue and her pet emu.
From the video below, you can see her pet emu is still quite young by size. As a benchmark, adult emus are about five to six feet tall! The best part? You have to see what it does when it interacts with the family dog.
