dog picking up tortoise

My golden retriever loves to chew on things and tends to pick up our tortoise and carry him around and I am scared she will start chewing on him, is there anything to prevent this ?

PS: the tortoise is about as big as 3/4 of a tissue box

Make a spot were your turtle can keep shelter where the dog wont be able to reach it. I had the same problem and fixed it that way.

Keep these animals separated. If you don't, one day, your tortoise will be dead.

The dog is doing what a dog does naturally.

Keep it slow and steady.
