Krueger is the kind of dog that looks like he can handle himself. However, there's one thing in the world that terrifies him - and it's much smaller than you'd think!

Big dogs don't scare. Or do they?
Krueger lives in Connecticut, USA, with his dog parents. He's a big softy at heart, but like all Great Danes, he makes an imposing first impression. This big dog weighs over 130lbs and is as tall as a grown man when he jumps up on his hind legs.
In other words, Krueger looks like he isn't scared of anyone or anything.
But looks can be deceiving, and there's one thing that can turn this tough-looking pooch into a real scaredy-cat! And it's a stuffed toy goat that switches from cute to 'evil' in a split second!
Krueger's dog mum caught the hilarious encounter on video. At first, the Great Dane looks intrigued with the furry toy. He even gives it a friendly sniff.
But when Krueger's owner presses a button on the toy, known as 'feisty pet', it snaps open its jaw to reveal a set of fangs, transforming from a cute and innocent looking goat into something terrifying (or at least that's what Krueger thinks!)
Krueger recoils in horror, then decides to make a run from it!
His owner decided to share the footage on Instagram, with the caption: 'Krueger, the 135-pound scaredy cat..Just watch!'
The clip now has over 16k views, with loads of people leaving comments about the hilarious footage.
One person wrote:
"This video is EVERYTHING!! I can't get enough!"
"Crazy doll! Scared me, I understand!"
Krueger redeems himself
It's fair to say that the incident took its toll on Krueger's ego. After all, if he's scared of a little toy, how can he keep his humans safe?
But like any true hero, Krueger faced up to his fears, and he's now braver than ever before!
