Dog Stretched Into Yoga Pose Has Internet in Stitches

A video of a dog being stretched into a yoga pose by a man has gone viral online, and it is easy to see why.

In the funny footage, shared to TikTok by an account called Dendollas, we can see a small sandy-colored pooch standing facing a man who is sitting on a sofa.

The man then gently lifts the pet's hindlegs until the animal is performing a handstand, and then begins cheering and patting the dog's stomach.

Following this, the dog is lowered back to the floor and sits down in apparent expectation of trying the move again.

The adorable footage, which can be watched here, is captioned: "How my dad stretches our dog #fyp #dog."

The clip has gained lots of traction online since it was shared on January 11, having attracted more than 25.3 million views and 4.6 million likes.

Additionally, it was also reposted onto popular Instagram meme page Pubity, where it has surpassed a staggering 502,200 likes, as well as a TikTok account called Betch, where it has garnered a further 171,400 likes.

Many people also flooded the comments section to share their thoughts on the funny video.

Recently another video of a dog partaking in a typically human task has gone viral on TikTok.

One dog recently was filmed hilariously showing a dog howling away to another pooch on a video call.

In the clip we can see a large fluffy dog jumping up and down in a living room and howling at the large TV as a huge white canine on screen howls right back at him.

The adorable scene, which was shared to the app by Sumoflifeofficial, is captioned: "So my dog FaceTimed his friend today."

Newsweek has contacted Dendollas for comment.
