Shade, who lives in Massachusetts, USA, gave the dramatic response as her owner asked if her paw was okay. The clever canine had torn her paw pad and had been wearing a bandage, but appeared to be ‘milking it’ to get an extra treat or two.
The tri-coloured pup held her poorly paw off the ground as her owner asked: “Your leg’s broken?”
The shepherd nearly gives her game away as she leaps up to greet her owner and hops around the kitchen wagging her tail.
Her owner, a dog trainer and breeder from Massecheusettes, asks the dog: “Shade, do you think you’re gonna make it? Are you dead?”
