If you've ever had a dog, you've almost certainly played fetch. And if you've ever played fetch, then you've undoubtedly also attempted to trick your dog by merely pretending to throw the ball. It's always kinda funny when they run off at full speed and then stop halfway when they realize what's happening. Some dogs, however, are a little smarter than that. Not every dog takes the bait.
Anuko the Siberian husky is definitely in that second category. When his owner, Jasmine Milton, tried to fool him by pretending to throw a ball, he just wasn't having it. Luckily, Jasmine had a camera handy and took a photo of the exact moment Anuko realized that he'd been had. She posted the image to Twitter, where it quickly became a viral hit.
Jasmine got Anuko as a puppy after being diagnosed with depression. She says he's lifted her spirits in more ways than she can imagine, and is "definitely more than just a pretty face!"
"So I pretended to throw a ball and caught the exact moment my dog realized I had betrayed him…"
Here's Anuko waiting oh-so-patiently for the ball to be thrown.
His owner says that she "got Anuko shortly after [she] was treated with having depression, and ever since Anuko has lifted any downs [she's] ever had."
Anuko's actually pretty famous for his "grumpy" look.
But he's really a sweetheart, and is absolutely adorable when he's feeling really happy!
Don't forget to SHARE this hilariously grumpy dog with your friends and family.
