Most dramatic dog ever? Australian shepherd with injured paw praised for hilarious acting

Shade dramatically flops onto her back, and plays ‘dead’, but quickly lets her owner know she was only joking, and just wants a treat.

The video ‑ posted to the @telltaleaussie account ‑ has been viewed 746,600 times in 48 hours, with over a thousand comments who can’t believe how dedicated she was to her acting role.

One said: “That’s a death drop if ever I’ve seen one.”

Another added: “She understood the assignment and did the extra credit too.”

“And the Dogscar for the best dramatic performance goes to Shade,” said a third.
