Animals Video

A farm dog has the uncanny habit of pointing at the chickens that he guards.

Every day, one-year-old pooch Captain is caught by his owner Rudy Mustang as he mysteriously points with his rights paw at the flock of chickens that inhabits the farm.

Rudy says Captain would not make the same eerie gesture at any other animal and the footage has gone viral, having been viewed almost four million times.

Rudy said: “He’s very timid and shy around humans, but he loves guarding the chickens.”
