In an effort to raise awareness for the Society For Prevention of Cruelty To Animals (SPCA) in New Zealand, the team taught a dog called Porter to drive an actual car around an actual racetrack.
No trickery involved – that dog can drive a car.
The folks that uploaded the video had this to say:
Dogs this smart deserve a home.
Every year, the SPCA need to find homes for thousands of dogs just like Porter — dogs who have been abused, abandoned, or just forgotten. Our dogs may be a motley bunch, but they’re all smart and they’re all lovable. So please don’t forget about them. Adopt them.
