This is a heartwarming moment as dog imitates his injured owner’s limp out of sympathy as he walks beside him.
Russell Jones, whose leg had been placed in a plaster cast, took to social media to share footage of his beloved lurcher Bill hop along the street with his paw raised above the ground in an effort to mimic his owner’s movements.
Jones, who is believed to be from London, later explained that he had paid £300 in vet fees and X-rays for his limping canine – only to discover the dog was copying him out of sympathy.
He also found out that the limping lurcher did not have any physical ailments and was simply replicating his behaviour
The proud dog owner, took to Facebook to write: ‘Cost me £300 in vet fees and X-rays, nothing wrong just sympathy. Love him.’
