The cute pooch looked to the right as it wondered where the ball had been hit
He looked back in confusion when he couldn’t see the golf ball dropping from the sky
Just to make sure, the adorable five-year-old dog jumped on the sofa and peered into the garden
Pablo places his front paws on the television stand and barks in anticipation before Scheffler drives the ball down the fairway.
Curious of where the ball is headed Pablo turns his head to the right, expecting to see Scheffler’s drive hurtling through the families front window.
He bounds over to the window, jumps on the sofa and stares into his owner’s garden, wondering where the ball might land.
Ruth shared the video to Facebook with the caption: ‘Where’s it gone?’
The video has been seen 1.5 million times and received 6,000 likes with more than 2,000 comments and 35,000 shares from users left in stitches by the clip.
Ruth said: ‘Pablo enjoys chasing balls but likes to keep them.
‘Pablo does this with any toys, some are for tugging and playing and others are for keeping.
‘We almost lost him in the first year we had him as he ate a pair of pants and that nearly killed him, he had to have four operations.

It’s not the first time Pablo has got into a pickle. Ruth said: ‘We almost lost him in the first year we had him as he ate a pair of pants and that nearly killed him, he had to have four operations’
‘He’s a friendly dog, loves people and other dogs and loves his food, he would eat all day if allowed.
‘Pablo does react to other stuff on the telly, mainly he whines if he sees animals.
‘It was funny and cracked me up when he started looking at the screen and went chasing the golf ball.’
American Scottie Scheffler eventually won The Masters as he carded a -10 for the tournament, holding off Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy by three shots to earn his first green jacket.
