Google Street View comes in handy when you’re visiting a new city. It also inspires people – and sometimes pets – to act a little crazy. (Check out some of the photos on Street View Fun for examples.)
Recently, one of Google’s camera-wielding cars captured footage of a sassy little dog in Japan’s Kagoshima Prefecture. Apparently the pup doesn’t take kindly to his territory being invaded.
Or maybe he’s just camera shy.
The unsuspecting Google driver encountered the pooch at a boatyard in the town of Kumage. You can tell from his body language that the dog is instantly displeased.
It could be he was protecting his owner, or maybe he’s been trained to guard the boatyard. Either way, as the strange vehicles passed, the dog immediately gave chase.
Despite the obvious size difference, the pooch reacted fearlessly.
At first the little guy had trouble keeping up…
But managed to gain some ground as the car reached the corner.
The Google car’s 360 degree cameras managed to accomplish what they came for: capture images of the Kumage shoreline.
But to the delight of dog lovers everywhere, those images will forever feature this plucky pup and his valiant efforts to protect his little corner of the earth!
Here’s the entire scene set to some epic chase music for added suspense. Enjoy!
