This dog will run away from any harmless object her owner picks up

From Post-it Notes to a hairbrush.

Ideally you don’t want your dog to run away in fear from you, but when they scare this easily it’s hard for that not to happen.

Nova is a bully pitbull, and she will run away from an object her owner Erik happens to pick up – take a look.

“Nova gets spooked by everything so that’s why she just ran from everything,” Erik said of his one-and-a-half-year-old pup.

He’s not wrong either, the video shows Nova running from a Post-it Note, hairbrush and even a small trowel.

The 18-year-old from Chicago runs a clothing line – let’s hope none of the T-shirts he’s selling are too spooky.
