She exclaimed "Oh my god" and can be heard laughing, telling her camera team to pan over to the dog, who looked like it didn't have a care in the world as it sat in the driver's seat.

The team uploaded the video to the news channel's Facebook page and it's had over 450,000 views.

The team were also quick to reassure people that the dog was not harmed in any way.

An update on the page said: "btw...all the dogs were unharmed & SAFE in their own yard, but his family's house was damaged. ( the camera guy checked on them)."

Another reader joked: "Update: He charges $30/ hr for his lawn service."
