Joyful whippet puppy jumps at seeing chicken dinner

While preparing some chicken for a dinner, a family in France were surprised when their young whippet puppy smelled the feast and was hopping mad for a taste.

The little whippet can be seen on his hind legs jumping up and down to get a glimpse of the meaty chicken breasts on the kitchen counter, and whining adorably for a mouthful.

The filmer said: "I'll give him 10 out of 10 for trying! For a dog so skinny, you'll be amazed at how much he loves his food!"
