Dog Asks Everyone Who Passes By To Throw His Toy For Him

His family even put up a sign with instructions 🐕⚾

Caterina Dellabona was walking by someone’s home one day when she noticed an unusual sign hanging on their gate. The sign, written in Italian, read, “Please don’t throw the toy on the cacti (the dog will hurt itself). Throw either left or right thanks.” 

She was very confused at first …

… until suddenly, a little dog appeared at the gate with a toy in his mouth, eager and ready to play. 

“He looked at us, wagging his tail, then picked his toy up and poked his head through the fence,” Dellabona told The Dodo. “It was wide enough for his head to fit comfortably but not enough for his body to go through so it was safe.”

It seems the little dog asks everyone who passes by to play with him, and so his family eventually had to put up a sign to make sure the playing was always safe. 

Dellabona began throwing the toy, making sure to avoid the nearby cacti, and the little dog happily fetched it each time and brought it back to her. She played with him for a solid 10 minutes before finally continuing on her way, much to the dog’s dismay.

Now, every time Dellabona passes the house, she stops to play fetch with her new friend — but never for as long as he would like. 

“I'd play with him every time I walked past him, but I would always interrupt the playing, not him,” Dellabona said. “I don't think he'd ever stop!”
