Have You Seen This? Yes, pit bulls can tiptoe

FOSTER HOME Redd is a pit bull.

Hes stout, solid and strong, just like many pit bulls, but theres something you dont know about Redd. This sweetheart of a dog does one heck of an impression of the infamous scaredy cat, Scooby-Doo.

Think back to an episode of Scooby-Doo any episode will do, because all episodes include 1 to 15 scenes of Scooby tiptoeing through an abandoned house, a defunct factory, or some spooky woods as he tries to find (avoid) reported ghosts, monsters, or beasts.

Now that you have Scooby at the forefront of your brain, watch this video of Redd. Ill wait

See that? He tiptoes carefully through the hallway in his foster home, just like Scooby-Doo, but Redds not scared of fake ghosts. Apparently hes utterly terrified of a real cat that also lives in the home, a cat that is locked behind the door you see to the right, according to the video description on Pound Hounds Res-Q's Facebook page. Now thats some true fear. True yet adorable fear.

The only sad part of the video is Redd will never have the relief of unmasking the cat to see it was really Old Man Jenkins the entire time who wouldve gotten away with it, if it werent for you meddling kids.
