Volkswagen has teamed up with RSPCA to create the paw-wheel-drive program which helps rescue dogs learn how to drive a car.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles collaborated with UK's Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals charity to teach three mixed-breed dogs to drive the 4WD 180 HP Amarok. The training process took part at RSPCA's center in Hertfordshire where the animals perfected their driving skills with help from a human instructor with access to dual controls.

The dogs used their front paws to control the steering wheel and gear stick while the rear ones were placed on custom extension levers attached to the accelerator and brake pedals. Thanks to this program, Tulip, Jacob and Harry managed to learn how to drive the Reflex Silver Volkswagen Amarok which can be seen on public streets with the "FR5T APR" license plate.
