An adorable video of a dog getting caught while trying to steal food has left netizens amused after it went viral on social media. The 26-second clip was shared on Twitter by a user @beckx28 along with a caption that read, “Caught ya.”
In the viral clip, which has now garnered over six lakh views, a golden retriever is seen standing on its hind legs and reaching for the food containers on the kitchen counter.
The dog is able to grab onto one of the two containers but is caught in the act by its human. “Unbelievable. No. What are you doing,” a woman can be heard saying in the clip as the dog looks a bit disappointed and guilty after being caught. “So, now I can’t put up stuff,” the lady continues as the dog turns away from her and drops the container.

Some also shared stories of their own pooches doing similar amusing things. “My Angus used to literally get in the bags after we had been food shopping and always get the bread and custard tarts out,” wrote a user while sharing a picture of her dog. Here, take a look at some of the many reactions to the viral clip:
That dog clearly deserves a treat for his effort and ingenuity. The person who left those tantalizing edibles within his reach, should always remember the first rule of sharing a home with a dog: Everything of yours is theirs if it’s within their reach.

My springer used to overturn her bed to reach higher. When I put things higher up she would push a kitchen chair closer to stand on pic.twitter.com/UBSPtqeE6U

My goldie was a counter surfer too. I ended up making special bags for him to “steal”. Happy puppy.
