Three chihuahuas have been filmed escaping from their enclosure with help from the group ‘ringleader’.
A camera captured the moment Rupert, the eldest of the dogs, used his nose to move the gate that blocked their way into the kitchen of their home somewhere in the US.
A mobile phone was set up by the dogs’ owner to try to capture their escape plot after they kept getting out of the living room.
It was soon pretty clear Rupert was behind the mischief, as the others waited while he pulled at the gate.

As soon as there was clearance the other dogs, Olivia and Stewie, were straight out and onto the black and white tiled floor of the kitchen.
A voice in the background can be heard shouting ‘it was a test’ as the dogs made a break for it.
The video was captioned: ‘When Mom is away the Chichis will play’ and a note on the footage itself read: ‘Set my phone up to see how they kept escaping’.
The video quickly went viral on Tik Tok, with viewers commenting that Rupert was the ‘ringleader’ and the others took advantage of his abilities.
One said: ‘That little gordo is the ring leader by the looks of it.’ Another added: ‘Haha, you can see who is the mastermind.’
Another wrote: ‘The other two let him do the work and they are the first to enjoy the reward!’

Others said Rupert was so smart he knew to intercept the camera on his way out. The video showed him running to sniff the camera after leaving the living room, whereas the other dogs just ran straight out of shot.
One wrote: ‘The last dog was covering the camera he aint leaving no clues.’
Another said: ‘And he was heading to take down the security camera too.
One penned: ‘Dude even knew the camera was there.. which makes it even funnier.’
Another added: ‘He was like: shoot we’ve been caught ik I’ll just cover the cam with my nose.’
Others wrote: ‘the leader: quick, erase the evidence,’ ‘he came up to the camera like “YEP THIS IS HOW WE DO IT”,’ ‘the black one was straight outa there’ and ‘when you do all the work for the group project’.
The video creator responded to one comment to say: ‘I knew it was happening but wanted to see it for myself.’
Other commenters said: ‘Can’t even be mad because that’s so clever’ and ‘I have 2 chihuahuas. If mine did this he would close it back up so his sister can’t get out.’
