    A pair of dog owners have to put on an Irish accent to get their Rottweiler pup to do what they tell him tol

    Jay Shore, 35, and Megan King, 33, brought their new pet Paddy to England from Northern Ireland four months ago.

    He spent his first few months in Megan’s home town of Armagh being cared for by her parents while awaiting vaccinations.

    When the dog arrived at the couple’s home in Formby, Merseyside, Jay could not understand why he would not obey his commands.

    For a laugh he put on a broad Northern Irish accent – and Paddy suddenly did what he said.

    Lab technician Megan said: “Jay obviously doesn’t have the accent which Paddy responds to. It was hilarious when we realised.”

    Footage shows the pup looking confused when electrician Jay asks him to sit – until he adopts an Irish twang. Paddy then immediately ­follows the order.

    Meanwhile, it comes as a woman left fans in hysterics after sharing a video of herself taking her chickenfor a walk on a lead at night.

    One commentator said: "Chickens are scarier than dogs when they start chasing you."

    Another said: "That's valid. I'd be scared scared if someone was walking around at 1am with a chicken on a leash."

    A fourth wrote: "I'd be way more scared by a single chicken than a group of dogs."

    Initially, fans had expected to see a dog – but the transition was way funnier as it revealed the black-feathered chicken.

    TikTok viewers took to the comments claiming that chickens were "scary" to them or that Freja was scaring people away from approaching her by making herself look "crazy."

    One user quipped: "If you look crazy, they'll leave you alone."
