Japan has its very own wall-straddling dog but now it takes dog tricks one step further with – the smiling dog. Located in the Okayama prefecture, this dog recently vowed the Japanese public by ‘grinning’ every time she saw her master.

Chii, the dog in question, demonstrated her affection for her master on Japanese TV where she performed her cheeky trick every time he came close to her.

In addition to the loopy grin, she also wagged her tail enthusiastically.

Interviewers for the aforementioned show also tested whether her pleased expression was dedicated simply for her owner.

Thus, they found that no matter how much she was patted and praised, she grinned only when her master was by her side.
