Neighbors Shocked As Dog Chews Through Letterbox On Front Door

Locals in Fife, Scotland, were simultaneously shocked and amused as they watched a dog literally chew through a front door letter box at the house where it lived. In a clip taken by a neighbor and shared online, the dog can be seen ripping through the uPVC door. It then sticks its head through a hole where the letterbox should have been.

Images of the dog’s antics were first shared on the Fife Jammer Locations Facebook page. “Different kind of ring doorbells in Kelty,” poster Marc King wrote. Soon, a full-length video was uploaded. Those who wondered if the photo was fake realized it was definitely real.

“Seen this n fried ma head this morning av seen the vid it makes more sense…what a loopy dog n poor owner dealing wi that lol,” one person wrote. Another added: “A walked past it going to the nursery was just sitting with its tongue out looking about.”

Many people thought it was hilarious. After all, it’s not every day that a dog chews through a letterbox. However, many pointed out that it was actually very troubling. For the dog to resort to such desperate behavior, it must have been distressed.

“Dogs do this cos they have anxiety. My German shepherd come through two doors when my daughter was born. Had to take her with me anytime I left with the daughter. Dog trainer told me she wanted to protect the kid,” one person pointed out. Another added: “Dunno y folk think this is funny. Poor dog obv stressed or bored.”

It’s unclear who the dog belongs to and whether or not it’s okay. However, here’s hoping it gets the attention and help it obviously needs!
