It was so difficult to choose the most talented dog in today’s Best Trick competition, but our TeamDogs judge had to pick a favourite. 

Chocolate rescue dog Ronnie has won the Best Trick category, after starring in his own Western movie. 

The Wild West pup has a talent for playing dead - while carrying a miniature yellow cowboy on his back. 

Ronnie’s owner, Roger David Muñoz Arteaga, shared a video on our Facebook post that impressed us all.

He said: “A year ago Ronnie was at Dogs 4 Rescue and now here I am, starring in my own Western movie!”

The footage shows Ronnie running towards the camera with Western music in the background.

You can hear a gunshot noise as Ronnie falls to the left with his paws in the air.

He lays very still on his side - as if he’s just been shot.

His performance is Oscar-worthy and most definitely deserving of our Best Trick Award.

She said: “He really looked the part, I felt like I was watching a movie and Ronnie was the star of the show!”
