German Shepherd's Reaction to Watching '101 Dalmatians' Is Melting Hearts

The film One Hundred and One Dalmatians is a childhood classic, but who knew that dogs could get just as excited by the Disney cartoon?

In a viral video shared to TikTok by an account called DaisygirlGSD, we can see a German shepherd standing in front of a flat-screen TV which is showing the 1961 animated movie, also known as 101 Dalmatians.

The large dog, whose name is Daisy, is watching the scene where Pongo steals Roger's hat, and is mimicking what is happening on screen.

While the cartoon Dalmatian shakes the hat in his mouth, the German shepherd can be seen shaking her head and waving about a toy she is holding.

The adorable clip is set to the song "Cruella De Vil" which is sung by Bill Lee in the film.

DaisygirlGSD has captioned the sweet footage, which can be viewed here, writing: "Oh! You know just hanging with Pongo. #gsd #gsdoftiktok #gsdlove #gsdlover #gsdmomma #daisythegsd #germanshepherd #germanshedder #101dalmatians."

The adorable video has gained lots of traction since it was posted on December 5, having been watched by more than 1.8 million people and liked over 138,800 times.

Many people have also flooded the comments section with observations and opinions on the hilarious scene.

One TikTok user, Kennedy, wrote: "Doggo equivalent of when people recite the lines in movies."

Another person, Mysterious_one, added: "Could this video be anymore adorable," alongside a string of laughing-face emojis.

Brent Russell Eady observed: "But he's actually growling and wanting to protect the house like a German Shepherd."

Liznell Hernandez remarked: "Stop it this is cuteness overload."

Jennifer Lyn exclaimed: "Oh my gosh! So cute! Ours watches TV but does not mimic."

Myah admitted: "I am actually crying at how cute this is."

Recently another viral video of a dog also had many internet users in tears.

The footage showed a sick Labrador being pulled along in a dog bed because she was unable to walk.

In the video, which was shared to TikTok by an account called MyLabrachildren, two other Labradors—one brown, one blond—can be seen flanking the beds, their leashes attached, as if they are taking their friend for a walk.

The clip has been viewed a staggering 2 million times and attracted more than 250,000 likes.
