Homeless Man Trains Dog to Collect Cash on His Behalf

This video may look adorable at first. After all, it’s an innocent-looking dog going from person to person with a pail in its mouth collecting money. People of Miami Beach couldn’t resist how well-trained and cute the dog looked, but this “cute” act landed the dog’s owner in a heap of trouble.

The dog in question is named Chocolate and his homeless owner Noe Boo, trained the pooch to do the “begging.” And as you’ll see in the video below, it worked. Chocolate’s talents won the sympathy of people’s hearts, and it got them to open up their wallets.

But after YouTube videos of Chocolate started to go viral, Boo was arrested on Miami Beach after an officer saw the owner punching, kicking and dragging Chocolate behind his bicycle. Boo was charged with animal cruelty and Chocolate was then placed in an animal shelter. Some reports stated he would have to be put down if a new owner was not found, but word has it Chocolate found a new home.
