Former Police Dog’s Reaction To The Word ‘Cocaine’ Goes Viral

A German shepherd named Dante has gone viral for his hilarious reaction to the word “cocaine”.

The former sniffer dog lives with his dad, Davey Rutherford, in Queensland, Australia. Even though Dante is no longer on duty, there are some things he will never forget.

Rutherford discovered the smart pup still reacts to certain words and shared a video on TikTok, titled “Sniffer dog knows English”.

In the video, Rutherford recited his shopping list to Dante. The dog casually looked out the window as his dad read off the list, until he heard the last item.

Rutherford said, “All right, shopping list. Bread, milk, pasta, eggs, mayo, cocaine.”

When the German shepherd heard the word “cocaine” he spun his head around and gave his dad a concerned look.

His dad quickly responded by saying, “Just kidding.”

The video posted in March has been viewed and shared by millions. The viral video has made the day of countless people and many couldn’t resist leaving a comment.

“We don’t joke about such things in this house,” wrote one person.

Another said, “Love this…trigger words.”

Dante not only responds to the word “cocaine” but also to the phrase “get a bag”.

When the intelligent pup isn’t entertaining his dad or the world with his word retention, he enjoys a stroll on the beach.
