This is the hilarious moment a huge dog loses its nerve at an escalator and had to be carried up by its struggling owner.
The dog – which tips the scales at a whopping 140 pounds – refused to budge when its owner took it to a shopping centre in the city of Chengdu, in Sichuan province, south-west China.
Video footage of the bizarre scene – filmed by the owner’s pal Mr Fan – shows baffled passers-by looking on as he struggles to pick up the mixed-up pup.
As he squats and braces himself like a powerlifter, he thrusts up with the pup’s paws over his shoulder.
Then – with his arms clamped around the dog’s middle – he steadies himself for a few seconds before stepping onto the escalator.
As his owner huffs and puffs, the pooch seems completely unruffled with its legs and tail hanging down almost to the ground.
Mr Fan joked to Doyin users – the Chinese version of TikTok where he shared the video – that the pooch felt even heavier as the escalator inched its way up very slowly.
The ride only lasted for half a minute, but Mr Fan said it felt like a very long time to his friend who was weighed down by the giant baby.
