Any news reporter that thinks a dog posed doing a keg stand is a worthy story needs to reconsider their career.

The tweet of the dog, Mya, was deleted, but Syracuse police investigated the incident and arrested the students, noted Syracuse.com.

Mya is reportedly being cared for at a local animal shelter.
