This changed when Gabrielle put The Lion King on, with Winston being obsessed with the film. The Disney classic is Winston's favourite and he can't help but react when watching it.

Video footage shows the beagle cross jumping up at the screen and barking when the villain Scar is shown. The video also captured Winston's emotional reaction when Mufasa died.

Gabrielle, who works in veterinary medicine in Ohio, USA, said: "At first we thought there is no way he's paying attention but then these reactions started and we were like oh my gosh he really is.

"He can tell from the body language from the live action movies who's good and who is evil. That's when he started barking at Scar and I had to hold him back! We think it's hilarious, he's so smart.”
