AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND -- Dogs usually chase cars. But did you know that 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. Watch the video above to see it with your own eyes.

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. Experts want to show how smart the dogs are.

They're going to perform a driving demonstration on national TV in New Zealand Monday. Trainers hope to find good homes for more of these dogs.
