Mashable reported that, while bringing food to Bond, a brown lab, Tracey noticed the dog did a tap dance of sorts in anticipation for a treat or food.

She posted a video of Bond's dance to Facebook March 3, and various shots of his happy dance have thousands of views on her Instagram page.

Tracey, a pet owner herself, also snaps photos of her German shepherd and lab mix, Bear, who frequently balances things on his head.

Tracey frequently uploads Instagram videos of dogs in the shelter with music playing behind them, but Bond's videos are special because of his cute food dance.

For those who thought Bond was just doing a trick, Tracey assures viewers that this is just his happy dance.

"I don't think you guys understand that this guy literally does this all the time and weighs over 100 pounds." she captioned a second video. "I can never stop working with animals."
