This is the moment a cheeky boxer dog was caught drinking from a fridge’s water dispenser at a family home in Washington.

His owner continues filming as she walks around him and observes him gulping away, completely undisturbed by her presence.

The video, recorded in Renton, has been viewed more than 50,000 times since being uploaded to Facebook this week.
But the footage has divided viewers, with some branding it cute and others labelling it ‘disgusting’ and ‘unhygienic.’
Some branded Walter a ‘very clever boy’, with one saying: ‘He’s no dummy…knows where the good stuff is.’
Another said: ‘I’ve often said animals are smarter than some people I’ve met.’
But others were not impressed by the clip.
One social media user wrote: ‘Cute and you can get a little giggle from this’, but added: ‘He’s intelligent but this disgusting!’
Another said: ‘And then, they lick their parts and their behind and they drink some more… I love dogs, but this is too much!’
‘Yuk that’s hygiene gone down the drain!’ said one, while another agreed, adding: ‘I certainly wouldn’t want to be getting water from there after that dog did that. Ew.’
It’s not the first time a dog has been caught on camera misbehaving in the kitchen.
Pointer River was revealed as a cake thief after her owner set up a hidden camera at their home in Wrexham, North Wales, last July.

Three-year-old River is caught red-handed stealing cakes from the kitchen counter
Owner Kara Probin (pictured with her dog River), 25, from Wrexham, North Wales, decided to set up a hidden camera after more than 15 cakes went missing amid the coronavirus lockdown
Kara Probin, 25, set up the camera on June 29 after more than 15 cupcakes that she had baked vanished.
After leaving the lens pointed at three buns on her wooden counter, the mother-of-one saw three-year-old River steal the baked goods and scarper.
During the footage, the hungry dog sniffs out the tasty treats and tries to reach one using her paw.
Having checked the coast is clear, River drops out of sight before reappearing and grabbing the nearest cake and dragging it to the floor.
Seconds later, the hungry hound reappears and snaffles another cupcake in her jaws before scarpering out of shot and leaving the final cake on its side.
