A cute puppy has grown from a neighbourhood star to a social media sensation after being filmed minding a food stall at a street market in northern China.
The seven-month-old dog was said to be helping his owner look after their business at the bazaar in Hebei Province earlier this month.
The pet’s owner had stepped away briefly, leaving the tiny animal in charge of the sales of their red dates and walnuts, a passerby who took the video told MailOnline.
Seven-month-old Da Huang was said to be helping his owner look after their red dates and walnuts at the bazaar in China earlier this month. His owner had left to run some errands
The heart-warming video was recorded in Shijiazhuang city on December 17 by Mr Wang, who was visiting the market.
He said that as soon as he stepped into the market, his attention was drawn to the adorable puppy, which he called Da Huang or Big Yellow.
‘His owner had some errands to run and had left the dog behind to mind the stall,’ Mr Wang said.
A 17-second clip uploaded by Mr Wang shows the dog sitting in front of boxes of red dates and walnuts while being chained to a red tuk-tuk, looking relaxed and friendly.
A blogger who took a video of the pet dog described the mongrel as active yet gentle. He went back to the market a week later to visit the pooch, bringing a chicken leg with him as a reward
Mr Wang described the mongrel as active yet gentle. He said he liked the animal so much he went back to the market a week later to visit him, bringing a chicken leg.
‘His owner was there the second time. He told me the dog was very obedient and never barked randomly,’ the man explained.
Earlier this year, another mutt soared to fame in China after being caught on camera apparently greeting customers at a vegetable stall in Hubei Province.
The amusing footage showed the dog barking when a woman asked how much a bunch of spring onions was.
