A Couple of Canadians were surprised by an encounter with a robot dog patrolling the streets for people who are not social distancing.

Video captured by a user named @bloodtear shows a creepy neon yellow dog-shaped robot with bright headlight and taillights scrambling down the street toward their car.

Instead of being freaked out, the female passenger is strangely enamored with the robot, which quickly scrambles away from the car.

A man who was with the robot dog told the couple he used the robot for work.

Robot technology is quickly taking over service industries, such as food and packaging delivery and even providing security.

The robot was designed by Boston Dynamics, and this particular model robot is called SPOT.
