Classical Canine: Meet Athos the Opera-Singing German Shepherd

Athos, aka Luciano Pupparotti (what we’d guess is his nickname), is a German Shepherd from Norway with a passion for classical opera.

You can truly see him soaking in the music from his favorite recliner before joining in. While hard to tell, we assume there is a single tear rolling down his cheek.

He also enjoys watching classic performances and singing along.

Athos is new to social media, so make sure to follow along as his singing skills and following grow. Who knows, maybe we’ll see him performing on stage one day! You can follow him on Instagram at @athos_singingdog and on TikTok at @hakarls.
