A LITTLE pug from the Isle of Wight has gone viral — because he likes the biggest sticks he can find.

Oscar the Handsome Pug lives in Newport with owner Emma Johnson and his story has gone national.

Photos and videos of Oscar have proved popular on social media and he now has more than 6,000 followers on Instagram, and 1,400 on Facebook.

He now has his own YouTube channel, which can be followed here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edt7eLNkAvI

The cute puglet likes nothing better than a countryside or seaside walk — as long as his is the biggest stick going. Despite his small size, he loves the challenge of carrying sticks more than three times his own length.

Emma said: "Oscar fills our life with so much happiness. People are amazed at his stick-carrying abilities and can't believe their eyes when they see such a tiny dog running towards them with a stick that barely fits the path.

"He makes everyone laugh and there is never a dull moment when Oscar is around. He is looking forward to Christmas. We just hope he doesn't try bringing the Christmas tree on one of our dog walks!"

Oscar will be three in February.
