Doggy paddle! Adorable moment dachshund kicks its tiny legs to swim as it is CARRIED over a puddle

  • Dachshund Ozzy kicks his legs in swimming motion as he is carried over a puddle
  • The canine continues to paddle through the air as owner Grace Bull carries him 
  • Dog had been on walk at Dartmoor National Park when he became nervous

This is the moment a tiny hound was given a lift over a muddy puddle – but apparently decided to practise swimming anyway. 

Grace Bull was walking through Dartmoor National Park in Devon when she scooped up Ozzy, her dachshund/Jack Russell cross, by his harness to carry him.

However, hilarious footage shows the seven-seven-year-old pooch waving and kicking his legs, as if doing a doggy paddle, until he was placed back on dry land.

During the clip, Ozzy waits nervously near the puddle before Ms Bull lifts him by his harness and says: ‘Ready?’

The canine begins to kick his legs in a paddling motion as he is carried over the muddy water.

After crossing the puddle, Ms Bull places her dog back onto the ground and he takes a look back at the muddy water.

The footage was captured by Ms Bull’s sister Olivia, 25, a graphic designer from Bristol, who described the scenes as ‘funny and cute’.

She said: ‘It was so funny and cute that he kept paddling whilst he was in the air.’
