Dog engaged in standoff with 'tiger.' His comeback is going viral

What would you do if you walked into the kitchen and found a tiger lying in the corner? Well, that's exactly what happened to this young German shepherd. When he meets the striped "menace" lying there, he doesn't quite know what to do.
Dogs and cats have been notorious enemies from the dawn of time, and when the dog meets a cat as big as he is, the reaction is priceless.

First, a woofed challenge. "Who are you, and what are you doing in my kitchen?" When the tiger refuses to respond, the shepherd decides to check it out.
Approaching from another angle, the dog is still cautiously curious. After all, wouldn't you be in his situation? That does look real!
So he gets a little closer, hoping to figure this out before the tiger regains his wits. Because the German shepherd is rather an intimidating dog. I mean, right?
So maybe if Mom can pet it, it might not be as threatening as it looks.
Still ... maybe Mom doesn't really understand how dangerous a tiger is! So he slinks up closer ...
Hmm ... he doesn't smell dangerous! Should I risk it, he seems to be asking? Would Mom really let me get torn to shreds by this dangerous animal?
Just in case, the dog keeps his flight button ready. 'Cause you never know when a cat — especially one that size — might decide to jump at you.
Okay, you'll have to watch the video to see what he does next. I'm not going to give it away! Once you've watched it, show your friends. But don't tell them a thing. That's what's so funny.
