VIDEO: Dog Sets World Record For Running On His Two Front Legs

… sort off, because Konjo’s speciality is running on his two front paws.

She became a record breaker after running 5 metres in 2.39 seconds while hoisted up on his front legs.

Konjo, who is half Papillon, a quarter Jack Russell and a quarter Chihuahua, had to beat the previous record of 7.76 seconds set by Jiff, a Pomeranian, in 2013.

Before you scoff at the accomplishments of either Konjo or Jiff, the record is recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records, so their accomplishments will go down in history.

In fact Jiff became so famous from his record that he appeared in Katy Perry’s video for Dark Horse.
Julia Pasternack, 28, from California is Konjo’s proud owner.

She said Konjo got into record breaking shape by eating ice cream (her favourite food) and ‘play fighting with people’s hands’, ‘ripping apart tissues’ and ‘scaring the mail man’.

We can’t say for certain, but it is possible Usain Bolt uses the same techniques during his training.

Julia thinks Konjo finds it easy to run on her two front paws due to her small size and the majority of her body mass being at the front of her body.
