Some dogs know how to turn the charm on and off. Initially, he seems like an adorable, innocent pup. But when his owner asks him to change his look up, his whole demeanor changes.
The dog, whose name is Reese, is a strong and handsome Rottweiler. This video shows him showing off his guard dog skills (and his acting skills). He starts off looking totally normal, and when his owner asks him to show his teeth, he flashes a gorgeous smile at the camera.
Then, his dad tells him to "show [his] mean face," and that's when the magic happens. Reese curls up his upper lip into a nasty snarl, bares his teeth, and even adds a low, rumbling growl for added effect. He really looks menacing!
Clearly, Reese has what it takes to be both a friendly family dog and a scary guard dog. When he's with family, he's his usual, lovable, smiling self. But if anyone tried to mess with the people he loves, Reese proves he's ready to handle some business. My favorite moment is when he drops the tough-guy act the moment his owner says "good boy."
