An adorable dog has become an internet sensation after pictures surfaced of him sᴛᴜᴄᴋ in a bush with only his head and paws visible. Gᴇᴛᴛɪɴɢ sᴛᴜᴄᴋ in a bush could happen to anyone, right? But only a Shiba Inu could do it and still pull off that uber-cute smile. What makes the whole thing epic is that precious look on its face!
Jᴀᴘᴀɴᴇsᴇ Twitter user, @yamamochi223, happened to be there on 17 Aug and took some photos to share with the world. Taken in Japan, the pictures are made all the more hilarious by the fact the hedge is at least 10ft high off the ground. Despite being ᴛʀᴀᴘᴘᴇᴅ in the hedge, he appears relaxed and actually looks extremely happy about his bizarre predicament. With his paws visible below, the Shiba Inu hangs suspended high above passing foot traffic with his tongue hanging out.
And unsurprisingly, adoring fans ensured the photographs spread like ᴡɪʟᴅꜰɪʀᴇ across social media. Twitter user @yamamochi223 tweeted the images on August 17 with the caption: ‘It’s sᴛᴜᴄᴋ!’ It gained at least 12,000 retweets and was favourited 11,000 times, with internet users cooing over the adorable pup before the post was eventually deleted. Even though they have been taken down, you will definitely keep a nice memory of the cute dog’s face.
Shiba Inus are a popular breed of dog distinct to Japan, and are one of the few ancient breeds once used for ʜᴜɴᴛɪɴɢ that are still in existence today. Known for their independent and ᴘʀᴏᴜᴅ ɴᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ, their name translates to ‘ʙʀᴜsʜᴡᴏᴏᴅ dog’.
