Self-Taught Skateboarding Bulldog Is Super Impressive

A 14-month-old British bulldog is making waves based on her self-taught skateboarding skills.


According to, Debra, Pumpkin’s owner, didn’t force her pup to take on the tricks.


“It started when she was just an eight-week-old puppy and we bought her a skateboard just for a laugh, really,” she told the site.


“I’ve seen bulldogs in the USA skateboarding but none over here and thought it would be great if she took to it,” she added. “We’ve never forced her on it or used treats to tempt her. She just naturally jumped on it and proved to be a complete natural.”



Apparently, Pumpkin will turn down treats in favor of boarding and is obsessed with cruising around both her home and the local skate parks. Her videos went viral this week…for good reason.


Go, Pumpkin!
