The beagle/basset hound mix is a self-taught pianist from Long Island.
According to the Long Island Press, this Ronkonkoma, New York, dog is self-taught. Buddy Mercury not only bangs out songs on the piano, he sings along too — earning him the nickname The Piano Dog.
“There’s actually people making videos of their beagles listening and singing along,” Glen Wolfe, Buddy’s owner, told WABC.
Buddy’s pet parents seemed to sense their dog was musically inclined when they adopted him. Glen and Laurie Wolfe named the dog after Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer of rock band Queen.
We are keeping our paws crossed that Buddy follows in the footsteps of today’s biggest acts and takes his talents to Vegas. Until then, fans can enjoy Buddy’s tunes anytime by picking up his album. Half of all proceeds from album sales go to support animal shelters.
For true dog diehards, Buddy has his own merch page too.
