Roomba chases scared German shepherd around Tennessee living room

A frightened German shepherd repeatedly investigated his owner's robot vacuum before running away at a house in Tennessee.

The dog, named Benson, seemed to look excited as his tail was wagging but wouldn't go near the cleaning robot when the video was taken on June 9.

The owner uploaded the encounter to the shy dog's Instagram page, @bestboybenson, with the caption: "Dad got this new scary vacuum, does anyone know why it keeps chasing after me??"
