I’ll believe it when pigs fly! How about when dogs drive? As part of a campaign by the New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), rescue dogs are learning to drive as an effort to clear up “common misconceptions” about shelter pups. These dogs may have been abandoned, neglected and mistreated, but they are just as intelligent as your furry friend at home! All three dogs, Porter, Ginny and Monty, are trained in real cars, adjusted to accomodate their needs. They have been taught to receive verbal commands as guidance, control the wheel and make turns on their own. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
