A touching video of a man walking with his young child and a giant dog in his arms has gone viral on the internet, confounding but enchanting viewers.
An image of a father holding his young son’s hand with one arm while carrying a giant gray pit bull with the other, the dog’s tongue wagging as its head hung over the man’s shoulder, was recorded on camera by Mexican Luz Elena.
The father, dog, and boy are shown crossing the street and continuing down the sidewalk in Elena’s adorable and amusing TikTok movie, “When your priority is your dog, not the child,” which serves as a discussion starter about family priorities.
The group of three appeared to be joined as they reached the sidewalk by a lady who was following closely behind and was pulling a child’s three-wheeled stroller or bike that was carrying a large boxed item.
According to a TikTok user, the child had to walk because his mother had stolen his vehicle. “No one noted the mother pushing the tricycle in the rear. Mom put something in the trike, so the child is now walking. Perhaps the dog is ill?
Others countered that the puppy should be carried because the sidewalk was too hot for the dog’s paws and the child’s shoes were providing protection for the child’s feet. One person says, “This is actually super sweet. The pavement is probably way too hot for the dogs paws so he is carrying him.”
The majority of people commended the father for carrying the puppy, demonstrating the growing trend of non-traditional, interspecies families, which are now frequently completed with a furry child.
“He is (showing) a lot of empathy and responsibility for his pet and his son because he takes him by the hand. a thousand blessings.” Writes one person. Another, relating to this father’s love for both the child and dog, adds: “Super dad. I would have done the same. Kid has shoes on and the doggy doesn’t. It looks hot too. Plus his mom was there maybe he wanted to walk,”
Despite being shared by Luz more than a year ago, this endearing video continues to receive a lot of attention and has received nearly 4.7 million views.
The way this father is showing his affection for his dog and child is really lovely! We wish that everyone had the same level of compassion for animals. How do you feel about this father?
