Concerned fans warn Ruth Langsford she’s putting her dog in danger

She had posted a video on Instagram

This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford has come under fire from her followers for sharing a video in which she is making her dog dance with her.

Ruth was holding her dog’s front paws up so she could practise her Strictly moves on the pooch, by shimmying back and forth.

The video, which has received almost 100,000 views in a day, has received a huge backlash after people worried the dog was in pain.

Lots of people thought it was cruel to make the dog dance and that it didn’t look happy at all. One person responded to the video by saying: “Nooo please put her down. This puts way too much pressure on her hips and spine.”

Another viewer responded with worry saying: “Cos that’s not hurting the dogs back legs AT ALL.”

While a third said: “That dog isn’t happy, that’s not nice for the dog at all and not good for it. Irresponsible.”

Ruth had captioned the video: “My Maggie helping me break my dancing shoes in….I’m worried….she’s got more poise & grace than me!!”
