A bulldog puppy loves to take her big sister duties to the next level by pushing her younger sibling in a shopping trolley.
In a super cute video, Belle walks along on her hind legs with her front paws on the trolley, pushing it as little Dotty peers up at her from inside.
Belle, who turns one later this month, decided to take over from owner April Adie, 23, by standing on her hind legs and pushing her tiny puppy sister in the black case.
April had taken her two dogs to the local park when Belle decided to copy her.
April, from Immingham, Lincolnshire, said: ‘Belle was loving playing the big sister – it was so funny.‘It’s as if she thinks she’s human. I couldn’t believe it when she started pushing the trolley on her own, so I had to film it.
‘Dotty loves being the baby and she looks up to Belle all the time, even though she’s technically a puppy too.
‘We take Dotty out in a shopping trolley when we go on long walks to the park because she’s only young and it could strain her joints.
‘This was the first time Belle had done this though, I never expected it.
‘Belle will be one this month and Dotty is only six months. They’re inseparable, they’re really close.’

Belle has developed a reputation for standing on her hind legs around humans, often doing it to have her photo taken.
But April and her mum Sharon Obee, 50, never imagined the dog would have enough strength to push the trolley with Old Tyme Bulldog Dotty inside.
April said: ‘Everyone has commented on how cute the video is and they were shocked she could push the trolley so well.
‘When we take pictures she does jump up or try and stand on her hind legs.
‘Because Dotty is the baby, she’s always getting up to mischief around the house, and because Belle is still only one, they’re both as bad as each other sometimes.
‘But on this occasion, it looks like Belle has decided to take the reins from us quite literally.
‘We love our animals in my house – my pets are my world.
‘We’ve actually got two other crossbreeds, three rabbits and five cats.’
