The video shows the intelligent Aspins as they run and halt at their owner’s command.

However, the original post, which now has over 150k views, 1.3k shares, and 200 comments, also drew negative reactions from netizens saying that it is a form animal cruelty.

Fugata addressed those who left negative comments on the video. In a separate post, she came to Mang Vic’s defense saying that he does not ride the dog-drawn carriage all the time.

“Naglalakad siya habang kaya pa ng kanyang mga paa (siya ay isang pilay). Hindi po masamang tao si Manong Vic at inaalagaan at pinapakain niya nang maayos ang mga alaga,” she said through the post.

Fugata also said that she provided basic veterinary care and supplements for the Aspins.
