The bearded dog has become a social media sensation after a video of him barking received more than 41,600 upvotes on Reddit – with viewers saying he sounds “like a chicken”.
The video sees a woman holding a dog, which looks like a cross between a Griffin and a Schnauzer, with a remarkable beard.
But it’s the moment the dog barks at the camera which has his owners — and viewers — crying with laughter.
The 25-second clip has generated about 800 comments, each more amusing than the next.
One joked: “A chicken in a dog costume with a fake beard.”
Another quipped “It’s the Lorax,” based on the Dr Seuss character.
“Dog Gandalf is barking “Thou shall not pass!” commented a third Lord of the Rings fan.
While another user added: “No, it’s just a dwarf old man who hasn’t shaved in decades.”
