This Dog Will Put Your Dance Moves to Shame

It’s unclear if this pooch will achieve the same level of fame as Sloopy the Dancing Chihuahua or a book deal like Snowball the Dancing Cockatoo, but with moves like that, we’d be surprised if it didn’t.

I don't find this funny at all, this poor dog is confined in a very tiny space and from what I can see is showing behaviour of one very frustrating animal who only wants to have some freedom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I sincerely hope some professional animal behaviorists can share their opinions on this video. It seems to be some kind of stereotyped behavior which was developed by this pathetic dog after long-time confinement. It's not funny at all.

This dog is amazing!  Very funny but I really really hope he doesn't spend much time in this horrible small cage. Does anyone know?  It's not right, dogs should never be locked up in cages such as this.  This is obviously such a smart, wonderful dog, I hope someone looks into this.  Dogs are such an amazing gift to us, we need to treasure them and look after them propely with as much love and care as possible and then more.

That dog looks like it has been trained in exactly the same way "dancing bears" have been trained in Russia for over a century, by putting hot coals under its paws while the music is playing. Once the animal coms to associate the pain of the hot coals with the music, it will forever after make those twitching moves whenever the music plays. I hope that is not the method used, but it sure looks like it.

@teddybtoronto I didn't even know about this!  How alarming!  I hope that someone sees this clip and looks into the welfare of the dog and soon.
