Meteorologist Mike Sobel of Edmonton, Canada, was just trying to do his job like any other day but this time with a twist. He decided to bring a dog named Ripple onto the set while trying to read the local forecast in order to drum up attention to try and get the dog adopted. The only problem was he wasn’t quite prepared for just how playful the pup was!

Ripple was brought in from the Edmonton Humane Society looking for a forever home. And he decided to try to win people over by demonstrating his best attribute: playing! He’s loving and playful but can be quite a handful for someone trying to do their job. Just ask this weatherman!

The Mastiff mix kicked things off by chewing on his leash and ignoring the weatherman’s command to sit. But that was just the beginning. The dog kept trying to lure Mike into a game of tug-of-war and ended up gnawing completely through the leash! You have to see it in action to truly appreciate it. 🙂

UPDATE: Ripple has been adopted according to Global News!
