The favelas of Brazil’s largest cities are a rather infamous aspect of the country. Associated with poverty, violence, and crime, it’s been the ‘wrong side of the track’ for the longest time. Their existence (and occasional destruction) has proven to be a delicate and sometimes international matter.

However, it would be remiss of us to ignore that even among challenging conditions, any human being can find much to love and laugh about in life. Especially if they have a four-legged friend by their side. Eager to play and be a part of the group, this rather intelligent dog participates in a rather peculiar jump rope session that is sure to be memorable for all involved.
