58 year old Jose Fuentes and his dancing golden retriever Carrie have been performing since at least 2007. They have made appearances on shows around the world, including France’s Got Talent and David Letterman.
This YouTube video, entitled “Dancing Merengue Dog” has received over 19 million views. It was uploaded in August of 2010.
They recently auditioned for this season of America’s Got Talent and the show aired on May 31, 2016. Here’s the full clip:
They managed to get 3 yeses from the judges, which means they move on to the next round. I wonder what else they can do?
Once Simon was done laughing, he said it was “Incredible” and he wished his dog could do that. He voted yes. Heidi said she liked it for the first 15 seconds…and gave a “no”.
Mel B said she “loved it” (yes) and Howie did the dramatic pause, before he gave the third “yes”
Carrie throws up her front paws with joy!
After the duo left the stage (Carrie danced off with host Nick Cannon) Simon said “I actually think the dog liked dancing”
Carrie appears to be enjoying herself, and the routine, to the song Shake Senora, is under 2 minutes, but there are some comments on the videos about her hips. I’m curious what experts would say.
Do you think this is bad for the dog?
