Internet in trouble as American bully thinks trampoline ‘his’
Don’t be fooled by the fact that trampolines are only for humans because this American Bulldog has clearly shown how much fun they can be for dogs.
A TikTok video shared by Veronica Mercado (@xvmula14) has netizens in a frenzy as she showed her brother’s dog, Bruce, jumping and rolling around on the trampoline. The American Bulldog was having so much fun that no one dared tell him not to be there.
The adorable video was published on May 19th and has already generated 2 million views and more than 147,000 likes.

The American Kennel Club (AKC) publishes a list of its most popular dogs each year, and American bulldogs are typically found at the top of that chart. In the 2022 ranking, American Bulldogs ranked sixth, behind French Bulldogs, Labradors, Retrievers, German Shepherds and Poodles.
Known for their loyalty and confidence, American Bulldogs were once a popular dog that helped out on farms. Now, however, as Bruce has shown, American bully owners will have their hands full keeping this energetic breed busy.
The AKC suggests a variety of activities to keep them occupied, including jogging, hiking, games and exercise. They often want to do something to stay mentally stimulated rather than sit and sleep all day.
Luckily for Mercado’s family, they seem to have found a way to keep Bruce active and entertained since he found his way onto the trampoline.

Despite his tall, bulky build, Bruce showed his much gentler side while enjoying the great outdoors. While Mercado joked in the video’s caption that he was “a threat,” the only thing menacing about this pup seems to be that he doesn’t want to share his trampoline with anyone else.
Commenting on Bruce’s antics, Mercado replied, “He hates it when the kids jump, he thinks the trampoline is his.”
Since Bruce’s video was posted online, over 300 people have commented praising how happy he seems, and many have even asked Mercado to post more videos of him as they just can’t get enough of Bruce’s endearing personality can.
One person commented, “Living his best life,” while another commenter wrote, “Bruce will sleep well tonight.”
One enthusiastic commenter wrote: “He’s just a kid, love it.”
