The video, filmed in the US on December 22, shows Apollo the German Shepherd following his owner around the kitchen, nodding towards the pantry and fridge and barking when his owner says the word “food” or “hungry?”
At the beginning of the video, the cute dog even looks down at his empty bowl and gives it a whack with his paw. The message he’s trying to convey could not be more clear.
We also find out later in the footage that it is just midday, which means that Apollo has just eaten and should be full up. After a few puppy dog eye stare downs, it seems like he will get just a bit more kibble!
It is not at all uncommon for German Shepherds to feel hungry more than they should or to simply have a fascination with food or anything that might resemble food. There are reports from all over the world that German Shepherd dogs can sniff out bones buried in some bushes, or them eating plastic bags.
Watch Apollo the German Shepherd try to communicate that he wants food.
