“Once we got a couple of meters away, he started acting like a normal dog,” Delgado said. “He got up, walked over to us and dropped dead again. His acting was perfect.”
The police told Delgado that Tizón is a shepherd dog who lives on that property. Seeing him up and about, it was obvious that he was very well cared for by his owners and actually in perfect health. This routine of playing dead was just an adorable trick he pulls on passersby.
“He was definitely looking for attention,” Delgado said. “And he got it.”
After posting about the experience on social media, others shared their encounters.
