Pup Horses Around With Police Steed on Wall Street

MANHATTAN — Seems like man's best friend has found a new best friend.

A plucky French bulldog engaged in a little horseplay with a massive police steed on Wall Street, according to a video posted on YouTube.

The massive horse can be seen standing behind a series of police barricades set up to corral Occupy Wall Street protesters in front of Federal Hall.

At first the pooch scampers away when the horse lowers its head to investigate, according to the video, which was reported by the Huffington Post.

But then the dog, clad in a coat against the cold, can be seen jumping at the horse and sniffing its snout, hopping and leaping around.

"That is so cute," one woman says.
