Lucca mastered the art of begging. Lucca’s human, Tommy Vietor. is a social media influencer and one of the hosts of the podcast show Pod Save America. Lucca often participates in their podcast, so this Shi-Tzu sure knows a thing or two about acting.

The dog uses his unique begging routine, which includes adorably staring at his human while patiently sitting at his feet. Upon seeing the photo of this charming dog, tens and thousands of netizens loved it, and the post went viral.

Another photo of Lucca trying to get his human’s attention by putting his paws on his owner’s feet likewise went viral and gained a lot of attention from the Twitterverse.
Aside from the begging routine that Lucca mastered, Tommy also mentioned how Lucca learned the art of waking him up early by lying down on his head on the bed so that he can give his furry companion an early breakfast.
