SALTINO, Miss., Feb. 11 (UPI) -- A Mississippi woman said her golden retriever in training to be a service dog might have found a second calling as a fisherman.

A video posted to YouTube by user 1khills shows Rani, a golden retriever in training to be a service dog, placing her nose just inches away from a piece of bread floating in the water near her Saltino home.

Rani detects motion under the water and quickly strikes, coming back up with a bluegill fish in her mouth.

The proud pup then carries the fish to a grassy area.

"Rani is a golden retriever who has caught dozens of fish as well as some turtles. Watch her snatch a big bluegill out of the water," the uploader wrote in the video's description. "She puts the bread right under her mouth for bait."
