Dachshund kicks its tiny legs to swim as it is CARRIED over a puddle [Video]

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.

Hilarious footage shows the 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?’

It is then that the dog begins to kick his tiny legs in a paddling motion as he is carried over the muddy water. 

The footage was captured by Ms Bull’s sister Olivia, 25, a graphic designer from Bristol.

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