Owner spends $300 to treat dog’s limp, only to learn he was imitating him out of sympathy

A London, England dog owner dropped the equivalent of $300 American dollars to have the pooch’s seemingly injured leg checked out, only to find out he was imitating his owner, who had a fractured leg.

Russell Jones, who walks with a limp, posted a video of his dog, Bill on social media, also walking with a clearly visible limp in his step and struggling to move, which has been shared by more than two million people, according to India’s News 18.

It’s not uncommon for animals such as dogs, parrots and monkeys to mimic human behavior; and, despite the hit to his wallet, Jones says he feels nothing but love for Bill.
