Chiko the Shiba Inu has given up leading a dog’s life and decided to become a human instead – after becoming an internet sensation through watching NETFLIX.

According to his owner Olesia Kuzmychova, the smart 7-month-old pup is completely addicted to films and Netflix.

And whenever he isn’t chilling in front of the screen, he’s sat bolt-upright at the table or picnic benches, doggedly following rigorous rules of decorum.

Olesia said: “From the first day I bought him he started watching TV with me, so when I went out I started leaving the TV on for him.

“The next thing, I noticed he started watching whole movies whether I was sat there or not.

“For the first month I was completely surprised.  I know some dogs like to watch TV, but not hours like him. But now it’s completely normal to me.”

Even when Chiko is out for a walk in the park, he wants his dose of Netflix.

Her family and friends still don’t know what to think of Chiko’s eccentric behaviour, however.

Olesia said: “My Mum is shocked and everyone else is too.”

Olesia Kuzmychova says Chiko loved watching TV right from the day he bought him home

As for his perfect posture, Olesia says not a bit of it comes from training. Instead, she speculates it comes from sitting on her lap.

She said: “One time, I was watching Netflix with him and after a few minutes he put to legs downwards like a human.

 Now he’s learned his human behaviour, it seems he’ll never go back. He’s even learned to chill with a beer in the evening.

Olesia, originally from the Ukraine, hit the headlines in 2013 when she won a £238,165 jackpot from a 20p bet on an online slot machine.

Chiko, according to Olesia, is becoming ‘more human’ with every passing day, and he has even started acting as if he is woking on the computer

She has since quit her £290-per-week job in Newmarket, Suffolk, and moved to Hong Kong, where she lives with Chiko.
