Deng Deng A Chinese Dog Trained To Shop For Owner

Deng Deng is a one-year-old sheepdog who lives with his owner, Zhang Tiegang in Changsha, southern China.

Tiegang trained Deng Deng to go to the shop, pick out his food and carry it all the way home for him.

Deng Deng is kitted out with a specially made harness, which comes equipped with two bags where the pup can carry his owner’s shopping.

Although the arrangement would seem to be beneficial for one side only, Tiegang claims that his dog is happy too.

‘He just loves to carry things. He started by begging to carry things home in his mouth so I built a little saddle for him and attached some shopping bags.’ Tiegang said.

‘I can just send him to the shop with some money and a list in one of his bags and he comes home with the food and the change.That’s how good he is.’

Of course, Tiegang did not divulge how Deng Deng communicates what he wants with the shopkeeper, and his lack of opposable thumbs surely makes it tough to handle money, but it sounds like a decent arrangement for both parties.
