Video show this brave dog named 'Harry Potter' protecting his tiny hooman friend who was being scolded by her mom. The dog is seen comforting the crying toddler while baring his teeth at the mother, seemingly warning her to stop.
An adorable video of a dog protecting the little girl, who was being scolded by her mom, has gone viral. The girl's mother recorded the video which has successfully melted millions of hearts.
In the video, the five-year-old golden retriever is seen protecting her two-year-old daughter as she was scolding the girl.
The mother tells that her daughter and her dog named 'Harry Potter' have a very strong bonding, they literally grew up together.
The cutest video shows Harry shielding the crying girl, You You, with his paws. When the mother started scolding the little girl, Harry rushed to her side and even appeared to snarl at the parent, seemingly telling her to back off.
When the mother Ms Sun saw this reaction, she immediately recorded it because she found it 'funny and infuriating' at the same time.
Not the question is why the mother was scolding the poor girl?
According to Ms Sun, she had just purchased a tub of facial cream for her daughter and left it in the living room as she went to prepare lunch. When she returned, she saw that You You had torn up the product packaging while playing with the tub of moisturizer.
'I was honestly really upset. I'd just bought the cream and half of it was already gone,' Ms Sun, 32, told MailOnline. 'My baby started crying because I was shouting at her quite aggressively.'
The mother says her anger soon turned into amusement when she saw Harry rushing over to the girl to protect her.
When the mother told Harry to stop protecting her, the dog became even more defensive.
'You, get up. Stop protecting [her],' Ms Sun can be heard saying in the video.
Harry did everything he could to comfort the crying girl. He wrapped his leg around the little girl and rested his head on her shoulder.
'I was still upset but I thought it was also quite funny.' Ms Sun said. 'It was very heart-warming. Dogs would find ways to express their love if you treat them properly.'
The mother revealed that this is not the first time Harry has protected his little best friend.
'Whenever we speak to [You You] in a harsh tone, he would come over and try to shield her with his paws,' the mother added.
'He would protect the child with his life.'
Ms Sun shared the video on Douyin, the Chinese equivalent of TikTok, where it went viral and received millions of likes.
Although, everybody loved the video. But some viewers thought it was fake and accused the pet owner of 'staging' the dog's reaction.
One Douyin user wrote: 'Did anyone notice that the pet owner hit the golden retriever first and it started snarling? It's the dog's natural response. It's not trying to protect the child.'
Another said: 'This is clearly edited. The mother taught the dog to hug the baby.'
The mother declined the claims and said it showed the natural reactions of Harry and her daughter.
'I was just documenting the daily moments of my dog and daughter because Harry is turning six years old soon and getting old,' Ms Sun said.
'I just wanted to capture these memories so I have something to look back on in the future when he's not here anymore.'
