Boing! This Puppy Acrobatically (and Adorably) Defends His Home [Video

This little guy’s willing to defend his territory by any means necessary … even if it means employing a little bit of acrobatic action.

YouTube user Mirjana Nesic’s pooch probably had no idea what he was in for when he went to greet the neighbor’s new puppy.

Out for a daily walk, the black lab noticed a puppy in a gated yard and went up to say hello, tail-a-waggin’. Too young to be well-versed in his social graces, the diminutive pooch unleashes his ferocious puppy bark (spoiler: it’s not that ferocious) and startles the pants off Nesic’s poor dog!

Here’s where it gets cute: Now, this pup either has superpowers OR he’s on a trampoline. We’re going to go with the latter option (though we’d like to believe the former!). Either way, it’s pretty impressive, not to mention adorable.

The little guy starts bouncing up and down like a spring, disappearing and reappearing from behind the gate in front of his house, and he’s clearly having the time of his life doing so.

Boing! Boing! Boing!

Who knew dogs could make such great gymnasts?
