A genius dog is able to play Jenga with her owner.
Clever Anya, a four-year-old German Shepherd, uses her teeth to grip the Jenga blocks as she plays with doting owner Lori Knoble.
Watch the pair play the classic family game here:
Lori, a 55-year-old business owner, from Cleveland, Ohio, said: "She never fails to amaze us.
"I set up the Jenga game and without any training, she seemed to just figure out what to do."
This video shows Anya grabbing a loose block from the mix, pulling it out gently with her teeth, then placing it on the coffee table and waiting for her opponent to go.
The pooch and her doting owner now play the game to pass the time in lockdown.
Lori and her husband, John Knoble, got Anya from a local breeder when she was 12 weeks old.
Lori added: "From the beginning, Anya was incredibly helpful and smart.
"She would help remove clothes from the dryer, bring us the TV remote and everything.
"One day during quarantine, in early April, I was looking for a way to keep us entertained and so I set up Jenga, and there she was, ready to play along."
Over time, Anya has observed how Lori plays, and is now able to execute her Jenga moves with total precision.
Lori explained: "She saw me playing, went to grab a block, and managed to keep the tower upright, all so casually with a smile on her face."
"She has truly been a blessing to us and we aspire to share her light-hearted, amazing, silly antics with the world in hopes of spreading love and joy," she added.
What a cute twosome! We'll happily take on clever Anya for a game of Jenga any time - we just hope she plays fair!
