Stray dog scratches back on steel bar making it look like it is stuck underneath

This is amusing moment a stray dog scratched its back on a steel bar, making it look like it was stuck underneath it.

The pooch moved back and forth under the steel bar to relieve an itch at the parking lot of a market in Pathum Thani province, Thailand on June 8.

Onlooker Theerapong Phanphaew walked up to the animal hoping to save it, but realised it was only trying to scratch its back.

He said: ‘At first I thought it was stuck under a low-level steel bar as it kept walking back and forth. I was so confused about what it was doing.

‘When I moved closer, I saw that it was only using the steel bar to scratch its back before walking away from it. What a clever dog.’
