Mission Im-paw-ssible: Dog Makes Impressive Leap to Protect Cat

A dog in the Oxfordshire village of Fringford showed off her sizeable vertical leap this August as she jumped over a gate to protect her owner’s cat.

Pip Bacon was filming her dog Maisie getting acquainted with her new puppy, Monty, when the older dog heard Bacon’s pet cat yowling on a nearby lane.

“Our next door neighbor’s cat frequently fights with our cat. Maisie heard it and was off to protect her,” Bacon said.

Bacon posted the video on TikTok on August 1.

“She has springs in those legs,” Bacon captioned the video. Credit: Pip Bacon via Storyful
