Amy Nicholson went for a walk with her boyfriend's family dog Bruce, and the footage of his sweet hijinx went viral.

Amy told Newsweek that Bruce suddenly started walking very slowly to stretch out the walk.

When this didn't work, he decided to take more drastic measures and lifted his paw.

But Amy already knew the trick! "I checked his paw over, but after two minutes he was back to normal again anyway. He's done it a few times now," she laughed, adding that "he's just the sweetest boy."

The video on her TikTok account shows Bruce's viral Oscar-worthy performance in full!

"You don't fool me, Bruce!" reads the caption. "Does anyone [else's] dog do this?"

Commenters praise Bruce the dog's acting chops!

"Hollywood is calling," wrote one commenter, praising the dog's acting skills.

"My dog does this. sometimes he forgets what paw hurts and switches between them," wrote a second.

"that looks so painful! you better carry him home and then give him a bunch of treats," added another. "(better safe than sorry.)"
