Clever dog's amazing trick to gain attention

This clever dog has learned how to fake an injury to get attention from passers-by.

The pooch, nicknamed Gae by locals, drags her back left leg along the ground as if it is broken. Once people crowd around, she then hops up and bounds away.

The stray pooch was filmed in Bangkok, Thailand, earlier this month.

Resident Thaweeporn Chongplapolkulsaid: ''This old dog has lived by my workplace for a few years. She always does this trick to deceive people.

''I feed her rice but she still has this habit. She's very smart. I think she does it to get people to feed her.

''While we stopped to watch her that day, a motorcyclist stops because he thinks the dog is hurt. But then she jumps up and walks away. It's too funny.''

Thaweeporn said she is a dog lover who has several pets and also rescues street dogs. She's certain that there is nothing wrong with Gae, adding: "We've checked both of her legs. They are both fine. If Gae had any kind of injury I would take her to the vets immediately.''
