The video with the Chihuahua gathered more than 1.3 million views. Network users were amused and appreciated the costume of the dog – but it turns out, that it is not for beauty. Such vests are bought for small-breed dogs to protect them from birds of prey, which can carry off the little fellow.
The owner named Karen from the United States posted a video of her Chihuahua online. She put a spiked vest on her dog and took him for a walk. “We’re not afraid of hawks – now the hawks are afraid of us,” the owner wrote under the video. Some owners wear such vests to save their pets from coyotes and even seagulls. At the sight of a bright suit with huge spikes – any predator will be frightened!
