Google Street View is a useful and fun feature that allows people to explore the world from the comfort of their homes. The camera finds itself in some surprisingly isolated and wonderful places, and sometimes manages to capture some truly bizarre scenes on it’s journey throughout the world.
Added to that is this episode from Japan, when a plucky little dog decided that it would give chase to the camera car. Why do (mainly tiny) dogs do this and what do they hope to achieve? Are they planning to rip the huge car to shreds upon capture? Nobody knows, and nobody knows what happened when the car hit a dead end, with the doggo still bounding manically along in hot pursuit.
The brave and slightly unhinged pup has become a hit in Japan, with district of Kumage, in Kagoshima Prefecture, suddenly becoming a popular search subject on Google Street View. How the scene was first found is a mystery. Are there people out there scouring every inch of the Earth from their desktops, searching for weird and hilarious scenes? We can only hope so. This isn’t even the first viral Google Street View dog either, check out this super cute pup following the camera around in Korea!

The plucky pup immediately began to give chase
Pulling a variety of facial expressions, from playful to slightly unhinged
