We already know that dogs are absolutely magic. This unusual pup seems to have taken his credentials a little too literally though, much to the astonishment of his owner!

Maldwyn the dog lives in the idyllic South Wales countryside with his owner Helen Morrey.


A post shared by Maldwyn🐾 (@maldwynthelurcher) on

The energetic Lurcher who’s thought to be a cross between a Saluki, a Greyhound and a Whippet, was on a walk with his doggy pals in Merthyr Mawr in Bridgend when the trio approached a seemingly insurmountable obstacle: a cattle gate.

Can't go under it, can't go through it...

The video shows the pups all slow to a halt and look to one another as if for guidance.

Maldwyn, or Mo, as he's known, watches his pal attempt to slide under the fence but one call from his owner is enough of an incentive and Mo takes a very slight run up and seemingly flies over the fence complete with spinning propeller tail!

An Instagram sensation

The hilarious video has become something of a hit after owner Helen posted it on her Instagram page. The video currently has almost 20,000 views.

Helen’s Instagram page is full of adorable pictures of her three pups taking walks in this Welsh countryside, just the tonic for those of us dreaming about long country walks when lockdown is over.

A happy rescue

According to her posts, Maldwyn was a rescue dog originally named Strom. The energetic pup is a bit of a handful but, as we can all see, absolutely full of fun.
