Doberman Arranges Toys in Patterns

They’re familiar, friendly, even somewhat fancy. But beneath the gnawing, snorting, fluttering, and plain ol’ monkey business, there’s genius. From 620 pounds of piggy intelligence, down to cunning little critters. The expected, to the absolutely unexpected, these guys take the game of physical and mental prowess to an extraordinary new level.

Video Preview: This rescued Doberman arranges his toys in strange formations. Is this by design or an accident?

    This is proof that animals have feelings..that’s why they shouldn’t be treated inhumanely.

    I just wanted to cry when he arranged the toys hugging each other..dying of cuteness.

    My dogs probably have the IQ of mustard compared to this brainiac.

    Our female Maltese, Bella, arranges her toys like that. We have several pictures of her designs, from straight lines to circles to triangles. We would like to get in touch with that doctor to show what we’ve seen and ask why they do this. Any help would be appreciated.
