Police ID missing dog by talent for singing along to TV tune

Siberian husky from Beersheba, found in Bedouin town of Tel Sheva, breaks into song when officers play soundtrack to popular ‘Shemesh’ comedy series

In a fluffy, modern-day version of Cinderella fitting the shoe, Israeli police have identified a missing dog by its ability to sing along with the theme tune of a popular Israeli TV show.

Police on routine patrol in the Bedouin town of Tel Sheva in Israel’s Negev Desert  noticed a group of youngsters sitting around a gaunt and neglected-looking Siberian husky.

Asked what they knew about the animal, the youngsters replied that they had found it wandering around a short while before.

One of the officers remembered that a resident of nearby Beersheba had reported a missing dog fitting the description of this husky.

They took the animal back to the police station, gave it water to drink, and contacted the resident.

The resident told them that they would know this was his missing dog if it sang to the soundtracks of two popular children’s TV programs, “Shemesh” and “Arthur.”

The officers played several other songs to the pooch, who did not respond.

But as soon as they put on the music for “Shemesh,” the hound burst into song, resoundingly howling along.

Within a short period of time, the dog and his owner were singing duets again.
