This is the cute moment a little dog copies the humans standing in a lift as if trying not to be noticed, before reverting to type and barking at everyone when the doors open.
The video was shot in the Chinese capital, Beijing, and was shared on the social network Douyin, which is what TikTok is called in China.
In the video, the little, white dog – believed to be a puppy – can be seen standing on its hind legs in the lift as it looks wide-eyed towards the camera.
The dog seems a little nervous and looks almost as if it is trying to copy the humans so it will not be noticed.
But as soon as the lift doors open and its owner leaves, it shoots out right behind him, before pausing to turn around and bark at the people who remained inside the lift – as if to underline that they had failed to notice a dog in their midst.
The video notched up several comments on Douyin, such as from netizen ‘Los Angeles Winning W’, who said: “This guy uses bad language.”
And ‘A little rain’ wrote: “Dog: I’m home and you missed me, now come and catch me if you can.”
