Filmed in July, this adorable footage shows Beau, an 11 week old puppy, pulling down and climbing over a gate which was meant to confine it to the kitchen.
The video was shot in Wapakoneta, Ohio, by the dog's loving owner Dan McLaughlin, who wanted to know how the mischievous puppy kept breaking loose.
He said: “When we left the apartment, we would put Beau behind the fence.
“But every time we would come back, even if we were just gone for a few minutes, we would find him roaming around the apartment and the puppy fence knocked over.
“I decided to set up a camera one day when we left to see exactly how he escaped.”
Beau was born on May 31, as part of a litter of four puppies and was bought by animal lover Dan who lives with his girlfriend.
The 21-year-old insists that Beau definitely has an adventurous side.
He said: “The first few nights we had him, we put him in a laundry basket with blankets to sleep in, and it didn't take long for him to find a way to climb out of it.
“He hates being constrained to a small space, and will find anyway possible to get out.
“He is also a very loyal puppy, and he will follow us around on walks right at our feet without the need for a leash.
“If he sees strangers, he will stand his ground and try to protect us by barking at them - although his bark is pretty adorable, and not very intimidating.”
