This is the hilarious moment a playful dog was left swinging from a tree - in a desperate bid to get his jaws on a stick to play with.

Footage shows the excitable Staffordshire bull terrier swirling around in the air as it stubbornly clings onto the branch during its evening walk.

Onlookers watched in amusement as the pooch repeatedly tugged on the branch in Saunders Park View, Brighton last Thursday.

Eyewitnesses said the dog swung from the branch for ten minutes before jumping down and running off to play.

Onlooker Curtis Sheppard, 22, said: “I was just sitting on the bench having a cig and I just heard this growling. 

“I looked up and saw this dog swinging from a tree. 

“He was doing it for a good ten minutes. 

“He did actually try to get a bit of the branch off but he just jumped straight back up again. 

“The owners were standing beside him and they seemed a bit unphased. 

“When I walked past I got chatting to them.  

“Apparently he does this all the time so it was just a normal part of his walk. 

“Everyone looking just found it really funny.”
