NEW ZEALAND -- Dogs usually chase cars, but as it turns out, they can drive them too!

Animal trainers in New Zealand taught three dogs to start a vehicle, then drive down a track and stop.

It's impressive. But this is not just some stunt aimed at making YouTube.

The SPCA in Auckland wants people to see just what rescue dogs are capable of doing.
