This is the hilarious moment an adorable sausage dog was caught on camera running rings around his owners.

Dave, the naughty Dachshund, has gone viral after a Ring doorbell captured the pet refusing to go inside after a walk, then outrun his owners by circling the family car.

Lakis Grafanakis, 38, Dave’s owner, said: ‘We had just taken him for a walk and we started to take him off the lead near the house as he normally just walks back with us. 

‘That day, we had been running around the park and I think he still had his adrenaline going and he just went for it.

‘We were worried because we were right by the road, it was heart stopping for us.’

The hilarious video also caught Lakis telling Dave, ‘That’s naughty, do you f**king hear me,’ after the cheeky pup was apprehended.

Just missed him: The pair made several attempts to nab the sausage into their arms before eventually catching him on his fifth lap around the driveway

The London-based bus driver added: ‘In that moment it was flying out of my mouth. You look at them like your babies, he’s 16 months and we’ve had him most of his life.

‘I look back and cringe a little bit but I was petrified.

‘I thought he was going to disappear or get hit by a car.

‘Ever since then, I’m too scared to let him off the leash.

‘One minute he’s chilled and then he’s running rings around the house, he has such a personality on him.’

Dave was eventually caught by Lakis’s daughter Andria on his fifth lap of the red car that sat on the driveway of their family car.

He stayed still as she laid on the driveway grasping hold of the cheeky pup, when he greeted her with kisses on her face.
