This restrained retriever froze on the spot when she spotted her mortal nemesis, a cat. True to half her breed, Ellie, an <a href="https://rumble.com/v3n917-me-and-badi-at-the-snow.html?mref=6zof&mrefc=94" target="_blank">Irish setter</a> golden retriever cross, stood dead still when she saw the furry intruder at home in Salem, Oregon, USA, on September 16.

As all Irish Setters do, the three-year-old pooch stood with her front paw raised from the ground and never breaks her stare from her sworn enemy! The only thing that gives away that Ellie is, in fact, a living, breathing and, most often, moving animal, is the movement in her paw when her owner, Dustin Dalen, tugs on the leash.

Not even the most strict of instruction on his side will make Ellie break away from her set. “Okay, come on Ellie". Nope. “Ellie, lay" he continues with a downward tug on the leash. She doesn’t even bat an eyelid. We even get a closer look of Ellie’s face, to see that she doesn’t twitch her muzzle or move her eyes from the sight of the grey <a href="https://rumble.com/v34eza-tabbies-bathing.html?mref=6zof&mrefc=95" target="_blank">tabby</a>.

“I was completely bemused by her actions" Dustin says."“Very rarely does the Irish setter in her come out, but sometimes Ellie will point at animals. This isn’t the first time she’s seen a cat but this one was a complete stranger so she froze on the spot. In total, she stayed there for about three minutes before I finally got her to move."

That’s genetics for yah.
