Dogs will perform any number of tricks to get their paws on some food and affection, but one dog took it to another level in a viral video. The 19-second clip from ViralHog (below) features a dog sadly dragging his two back legs behind him, begging for food, before he gives up the ruse and walks away with spring in his step, reports Metro UK.

It’s not uncommon for pets to fake illness or injury for attention. “Typically, the pet will fake being sick in order to get special attention and it works a charm on us,” wrote animal communicator Sarah Messina for Wild Insights.
