A dog has become famous in China for his ability to balance on the back of a bicycle.

Eight-month-old Gougou balances on the carrier on the back of his owner’s bike, reports Guangzhou Daily.

"If he needs to pee, he taps my shoulder with his front paw. Then when I stop he runs to a secret place," says Mr Liu, of Guangzhou city.

"A relative gave him to me as a puppy, and when I picked him up to go home, he jumped onto my rear carrier, and kept perfect balance."

Mr Liu’s daily bike ride along the Zhujiang River has since become a local spectacle, with passers-by stopping to ask questions and take pictures.

"When he feels tired, he sits down on the carrier. And if we ride for a long time, the first thing he does after we get home is run for the water tap, and sit under it waiting for me to give him a bath."
