Jilli Dog, an adorable 5-pound Yorkie, is the World’s Only Poker-Playing Dog! Nine years ago, Rick Caran found this precious little girl wandering the streets, hungry and dirty, and without a collar or tags. Since then, the two have been inseparable!
As a rescue herself, Jilli Dog was the perfect choice for Goodwill Ambassador for the Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue.
And it turns out this spunky little yorkie is sharp as a tack. In addition to learning to play poker and basketball, she can perform some amazing tricks, which has made her world-famous, with television appearances as far away as Japan and Australia, and even a feature in one episode of Disney’s “Johnny and the Sprites”! She’s come a long way since being rescued by Rick nine years ago.
It’s impressive enough when a dog learns basic commands like “sit,” “stay” and “heel,” but what you’re about to see Jilli Dog do is nothing short of AMAZING: Right before your eyes, she’ll perform a magic card trick!
