We all know a greedy pooch who will eat anything that falls to the floor but this little tyke has taken things to the next level with his fork-tacularly greedy antics.

Elise Pitt was hosting a dinner party for a group of her friends in Adelaide, Australia. She knew that her five-month-old Golden Retriever Dustin would probably hand around trying to snaffle food from the floor but she had no idea quite how far he'd go.

A very greedy guest

Little Dustin waited patiently underneath the table and was in for a huge treat as one diner dropped their entire plate and cutlery to the floor.

Knowing what a greedy boy Dustin is, Elise immediately scrambled to the floor but it was too late and Dustin had already swallowed the contents of the plate. Alarmingly though, the diner's fork was also nowhere to be found.

Unsure if he'd eaten the fork but unwilling to take the risk, they rushed Dustin to the Animal Emergency and Referral Centre in Adelaide and were very relieved that they did.

A shocking discovery

An x-ray revealed a completely intact fork sitting in the tummy of the pooch.

Thankfully the veterinarians worked their magic and using an endoscope managed to extract the full-size, metal utensil from Dustin's tummy.


Have you ever been so hungry you swallowed a fork with your dinner? That's exactly what happened to Dustin the golden...

No lessons learned!

The pup has since made a full recovery but still hasn't learned his lesson and is now happily back to trying to eat everything that drops in his path.

Let’s hope for his sake that next time it’s bones or dog chews they serve for dinner!
