Moscow subway goes to the dogs [VIDEO]

Man’s best friend, the dog, has been an inseparable part of our world for a very long time. They are also great survivors under all kinds of conditions and this is no different in Moscow. As we all know dogs are pretty smart but the idea that the stray dogs in Moscow have figured out how to become modern day commuters is pretty amazing.

It appears that these stray dogs spend their nights in the suburban shelters that they have created from empty buildings and then travel the subway to the city center where their for scraps is more productive. they have done this after learning to judge the length of time they need to spend on the train. They also have figured out how to pick the quietest carriages on the subway train.

Dr Poiarkov told how the dogs like to play during their daily commute. He said: “They jump on the train seconds before the doors shut, risking their tails getting jammed. They do it for fun. And sometimes they fall asleep and get off at the wrong stop.”

The dogs have learned to use traffic lights to cross the road safely, said Dr Poiarkov. And they use cunning tactics to obtain tasty morsels of shawarma, a kebab-like snack popular in Moscow. They sneak up behind people eating shawarmas — then bark loudly to shock them into dropping their food.
