Never underestimate how clever dogs can be. Especially when their owner sets rules for them...

"I'm not allowed on the couch? Well, as long as one foot is on the ground, technically I'm not breaking the rules!" Below, Bored Panda has put together a list of dogs that thought of the most clever ways to bend the rules. In fact, they bend the rules in such an adorable way it's impossible to get mad at them! But I bet they knew that already... Keep on scrolling to check out the pics and feel free to submit your own to the list.

cath8enn Report

Kerri Russ 1 year ago

I don't understand everyone here judging people for the choices they make about where their pet can go. No one knows their circumstances. This pupper looks well-cared for and healthy. If he's not allowed on a rug, so what? I have a huge dog-sized rabbit in my house and he's in a pen most of the time, but he's healthy and happy and has the run of the house for a few hours every day. It's for his own good to be in the pen. If he weren't in our pen, he'd have been dinner for someone else. There are reasons people do what they do... and you don't have to agree.
