One area dog has become an internet sensation overnight. After his owner posted a video on Youtube, the one-year-old Saint Bernard, named Jub Jub was showing off his talents on Good Morning America, Wednesday morning.
Jub Jub can balance everything from a waste paper basket to a kitten on his head and nose. His owner describes him as a big, loveable baby.
He weights over 175 pounds and his hidden talent, balancing almost anything on his head. But, his owner, 23-year-old Stew McFadden thinks otherwise.
" I don't even know if I count it so much as a trick.. I kind of attribute it to him being lazy and docile.. He is obedient, but can be stubborn at times.. I think he is waiting it out and doing it for the sake of treats," said McFadden.
Stew says he did not anticipate Jub Jub becoming popular overnight.
"I just kind of video tape him with my phone to archive memories and over the past year or so he developed sort of a following," explained McFadden.
Jub Jub has almost 30,000 Youtube hits and counting.
" His Facebook and Youtube has been going crazy today.. He's been enjoying the trip and loving the attention," said McFadden.
Jub Jub's name may seem original, but Stew says after a lot of deliberation...
"It was actually suggested to me from a friend.. It was from the Simpsons... one of Patty or Selma's pet iguana is named Jub Jub, so I guess he's named after an iguana," said McFadden.
Jub Jub's first ever balancing act started with a small treat. Then it progressed into bigger objects like a violin and an 8-foot fluorescent light bulb.
