Small But Mighty Staffy Can Jump Five Metres And Climb Up Trees

Small But Mighty Staffy Can Jump Five Metres And Climb Up Trees

If you look at Staffordshire Bull Terrier Romeu you'd be forgiven for thinking he's just a regular dog.

But despite weighing in at just 14 kilos, the tiny pooch is far from ordinary, and is actually so strong that he would put most humans to shame.

Thanks to the training of his owner, Renato Videira, 31, the small dog boasts some impressive physical capabilities.

While Renato has only been training his pup for four months, he can already leap a whopping five metres in the air.

That's not all the mighty canine can do either, as he's also got the power to hurtle over sandwich boards and sprint at lightening speed on a fast moving treadmill.

Plus, Romeu can also run up massive tree trunks - spurred on by a dangling piece of meat ahead of him, of course.

Super-strong Romeu is only two years old, and was bred in from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The powerful pup might already boast some impressive skills, but his owner anticipates he's only going to get stronger.

He said: "In the past, Staffordshire bull terriers used to be fighting dogs. Today they are mostly kept as house pets and they weigh between 18 and 20 kilos.

"Thanks to his training, Romeu only weighs 14 kilos and displays all the incredible strength typical of this breed."

He also insists that his canine companion enjoys the challenges, however tough they look!

"We started training as a hobby and now we do it multiple times a week," he added.

"Our bond got better and better and we became best friends."

If that's not motivation to do some weight training, we don't know what is!
