Samba dancing dog takes Facebook by storm

Brazil is in full-on party mode!

With carnival up and down the country, even some four-legged friends have gotten involved, producing social media’s latest star.

A video uploaded to Facebook under the username Lucelia Lucelia truly captures that Brazilian party spirit.

This dog appears to have all the samba moves, as he appears in a video recorded in Salvador de Bahía dancing with his owner. The video has had some 20 million replays to date.

People can be heard cheering and applauding the dog who has received some 190,000 Facebook ‘likes’.

Yet one Facebook user pointed out that the dog isn’t dancing.

In fact the dog’s jiggling movements are symptoms of distemper, and the animal is, sadly, seriously ill.
