Amusing footage shows an aggressive dog retreating in fear after being presented with an onion.
The four-year-old pooch named Prince was growling while being given random objects by his owner, Peter, in Sicily, Italy on January 20.
In the video, fiery chihuahua Prince came face-to-face with a remote control, which he grabbed immediately. It did the same with two candies and a banana.
However, Prince reaction changed when the owner offered it a sliced onion – which sent the pooch backing away and whimpering in fear.
Peter said: ‘He is indeed a genius because onions are not good for dogs, so maybe that’s why he refused to bite it.’
