Dramatic Dog Deserves Oscar for This Acting

Atlas is a one-year-old husky with aspirations for the big screen. On cue, Atlas can dramatically flop over as if shot by John Wayne himself. His owner Angela told Storyful: “We taught him to play dead but he often drags out the trick with hilarious howls until he finally flops over. I think he would make an exceptional dramatic actor.” Credit: YouTube/Angela Graham
