A little rescue dog is quickly becoming a viral sensation for his incredible piano skills. Buddy Mercury, is the ultimate family dog who loves to sing and play with kids. His adoptive parents recently uploaded a video of the beagle rocking out with his little sister – and the internet has gone bananas for it. The video has accrued over 4 million views, and we can see why.
The self-taught Buddy Mercury is named after the late lead singer of the rock band Queen, Freddie Mercury. Buddy even has a website where fans can buy his merch, as well as download his latest music.
On his website, his owners wrote, “Buddy has captured the hearts of many music fans around the world in a short time. Thank you for all the love and kind words! Buddy loves entertaining his family and fans!”
His adoptive parents gave Bored Panda the story of his adoption, saying, “We met him at an adoption event on April 30, 2016, and brought him home! He is one of the kindest, sweetest dogs I’ve ever met. He absolutely loves people. But he also loves other animals. Even cats! He gets along with everyone. He’s a little love. Buddy Mercury plays his piano daily! Many times multiple times per day. He would like to inspire other animals and children all over the world about the joy of music and to always let your creative juices flow.”
Apparently, Buddy’s mission is to help save more animals, who – like him – need a home after a rough start in life. “We feel he plays his tunes not only for the love of music, and his family but as a call to action for others to consider rescuing an animal. There are so many out there in need of a good, loving and happy home.”
Music is something that Buddy Mercury’s family really appreciates since his adoptive dad is a drummer and has been one of Buddy’s influences.
“Any time his dad is drumming away, Buddy will be inspired. Same as when Lil Sis is playing her guitar or singing and dancing. It’s amazing.”
As far as what the future holds, supposedly Buddy Mercury would love to meet Jimmy Fallon, and perhaps even perform a duet with him.
“He’d [also] love to meet Ellen someday – good humans, doing good, kind amazing work for others out there. He loves making people smile!”
Looks like the world is an oyster for this cute little doggie.
