Dachshund Refuses To Go Potty In -31 Degree Weather

An adorable Dachsund in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada was in for quite a surprise when his owner opened the door to let him go potty.

If you’re familiar with Alberta, Canada you know that it can get quite cold there, especially over the winter months. While Shreddy may be used to the cold weather, he wasn’t prepared for the chill when his owner opened the door and he felt the -35 C (-31 F) temperatures.

Shreddy may have had to go potty, but the second he felt the chill, he changed his mind and refused to go out.

Shreddy’s owner recalled the hilarious moment to ViralHog saying:

“It was -35 C and my dog Shreddy wanted to go outside to relieve herself. I bundled her up with her winter jacket and she waited for me to open the door and let her out. The moment the door opened she did an about-face and decided she could hold it.”

Given the frigid temperatures, I can’t say I blame her! I’d want to hold it in too.
