Adopted Dog's 'Zoomies' After Arriving at Forever Home Melts Hearts Online

One dog's heartwarming reaction to discovering her new home after being adopted on Monday has gained attention online, as the dog rushed around the yard.

The dog's owner shared the clip to popular Subreddit "Zoomies," where fellow dog-lovers head to share the adorable moments their canines "zoom" around.

According to the owner, the dog is believed to be a Labrador mix with a greyhound, though it's possible it could be a Carolina dog. In the video, the dog can be seen running around the yard at full-speed, bouncing around and circling different areas over again, running around furniture and plants.

"Look at you go," the owner can be heard cheering on in the background. The dog's new home is situated in Austin, Texas. "We got her from a local shelter in central Texas but I don't know her story before that," confirmed the owner in a comment.

In Texas, dog adoption is growing but still has a long way to go. According to data from Best Friends, who complete a study every year on the state of dog euthanization across the U.S., Texas has a save rate of 80.8 percent.

This adopted dog's new yard is likely a stark difference from her previous life, now having room for all the "zoomies" in the world. Zoomies are actually called Frenetic Random Activity Periods, which, according to American Kennel Club (AKC), "refer to those unmistakable explosions of energy that dogs have on occasion."

"Zoomies often feature frantic, repetitive behavior such as running in circles or spinning around. A frequent cause of zoomies is an excess buildup of energy that dogs hold on to, which is then released in one big burst," the AKC reports. Zoomies might be normal behavior for a dog but that doesn't stop them winning the hearts of many, including the 13,000 users who liked the post.

Newsweek has contacted the dog's owner for comment.

Viewers were left in awe of both the dog and its reaction to its new home, taking to the comments to express their joy.

"Such a beautiful dog. I'm sure she can't wait to let everyone know that's her territory now. I hope you enjoy her very much," wrote one user.

"Love that she stops for thank you kisses. Congrats on your new family member," added another.

It's certainly not the fist time a pet's "zoomies" have caught the attention of the internet either. In March, a Virginia cat went viral on Reddit for her hilarious zoomies up and down the stairs of the house.
