Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Not the New Zealand chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), which has launched a marketing campaign featuring dogs - real dogs - learning how to drive. Really.
SPCA Auckland chose three abandoned dogs - Monty, Ginny and Porter - and put them behind the wheel of a car to show that rescue dogs are a first-rate choice for adoptions.
"I think sometimes people think because they're getting an animal that's been abandoned that somehow it's a second-class animal," SPCA Auckland's CEO, Christine Kalin, told the New Zealand Herald. "Driving a car actively demonstrates to potential rescue dog adopters that you can teach an old dog new tricks."
