Meet The World's First Ice-Skating Dog Who Has The Most Incredible Story

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Benny, the rescue dog who has overcome great adversity to become the world's first ice-skating pooch.

With the help of owner Cheryl Del Sangro, who rescued him from euthanasia when he was just a few months old from a local shelter, Benny has become extremely talented on the ice, performing in front of big crowds.

Just look at the little guy go.

Benny's owner Sangro describes the lovable pooch as 'uncommonly smart and agile' as he holds the hockey stick in its mouth while skating simultaneously.

Something that many humans would struggle to do, never mind a dog.

It didn't take long for Benny to get the grip of ice-skating, and despite a slow start, his owner was 'astounded' by the tyke's rapid progress:

"He was very comfortable and immediately started to skate. I corrected his feet positions a few times and he was off on his own." DelSangro said via The Daily Mail

'We were completely astounded.'

So, what's next for Benny? It looks like he will perform as part of the Las Vegas Golden Knights' professional ice hockey team. No, really.

What a guy!
