TY TY, GA (WALB) - What kind of tricks can your dog do?

While most dogs can fetch or roll over, they probably can't do what Shelby can do. Shelby is a Boston Terrier who lives in Ty Ty and loves to ride on her owner's dirt bike.

Whenever Tony Wilkerson or his son gets on the bike, Shelby insists on coming along.

Her interest in becoming a biker dog started shortly after the Wilkersons got her about three years ago.

Now she rides along a couple of times a week. "We ride up and down the yard a little bit and maybe even up and down the ditch somewhat," said Shelby's owner, Tony Wilkerson.

Wilkerson says she can even steer the bike a little bit.

Shelby has had several litters of puppies, but none of them has shown any interest in riding the dirt bike.
