A dog with an ‘Italian accent’ has left social media users in shock.
Look I know what you’re thinking, ‘how can a dog have an Italian accent?’ because that’s what I thought, too - but, honestly, you need to check this out:
The clip, which was originally shared on TikTok, shows an adorable husky - a breed known for being quite vocal - called Aaron who is engaging in a conversation of sorts with his owner.
However, social media users couldn’t help but notice that the cute pooch appears to have a strong Italian accent.
Sharing the clip on X, formerly known as Twitter, one person wrote: “Currently obsessed with this dog that sounds like it has an Italian accent.”
Another said: “OMG, this just proves animals can make noises in different languages.”
A third added: “I am now 100% convinced that dogs can pick up accents from their humans.”
While someone else said: “Within our lifetime a husky will figure out how to talk. They’re so close already…”
A fifth person joked: "Mario's new voice actor looks different from how I expected him to."
According to the American Kennel Club, huskies can - over time - learn to mimic the way their owners talk.
The AKC explains on its site: "Huskies are very sensitive to the frequencies and tones of human speech and quite good at imitating those sounds. If a husky hears 'I love you' often enough in the same tone of voice, they may very well respond in sounds that sound similar 'I love you'.
"Being such a vocal breed, huskies will often respond to a human talking to them by answering back."
Aaron isn’t the only dog to go viral thanks to his unusual ‘voice’ recently, earlier this month a dog managed to perfectly execute the ‘most articulate woof’.
The dog in question was a giant Alaskan malamute named Phil, who belongs to 'The Matthews Malamute Family' and regularly goes viral.
In one resurfaced clip, Phil lets slip the ‘most articulate woof’ ever.
Commenting on the clip one person said: "Not only did he woof, he clearly enunciated it to spite you.”
"Bro didn’t bark it, he spoke it," a second added.
"He spelt the W in woof like Malfoy spells P in Potter," quipped a third.
"He pronounced the vowels and consonants with that one," another person thought.
"The dog speaks better English than me," someone else admitted.Featured Image Credit: TikTok/@aaronthehusky_
