When dog owners learn that their dogs are in pain, they would immediately bring them to a veterinarian to address the problem. This is why when this dog named Billy began limping, the dog’s parents contacted a veterinarian right away. However, it turns out that the dog does not need any medical care because he was not in pain. Read on to find out how dog mimics limping dad.
The reason why Billy was limping is that he is mimicking his dad. At that time, Russel Jones had his foot plastered with a cast. Russel needed a cast because he sprained his ankle during a run. In an interview, Russel mentioned that he did not expect that Billy would mimic him because that is not the dog’s attitude.
When the dog began mimicking Russel, the owner immediately thought there was something wrong. As such, he informed his wife, and then they contacted their veterinarian to check Billy.
Upon seeing the dog, the vet suggested that Billy should undergo x-rays and other tests to ascertain what was wrong with him. When the results came out, there was nothing wrong with the dog’s feet. This was the time that Russel and his wife thought that the dog was copying his dad’s movements.
This became apparent when Russel started limping again, and Billy eagerly copied the man’s movement. Instead of getting mad at the dog because they had to spend $400 for the tests, Russel could not control himself but laugh.
According to Russel, he never thought that Billy would do such an act, but this act somehow made his day. After they caught Billy copying his dad’s movement, Russel’s wife decided to film the dog doing the act. Russel’s wife then uploaded the video on the internet, so that other dog owners would be warned about what their dogs are capable of doing. Do you know anyone whose dog mimics limping dad?
