A viral video of a golden retriever "dog pile" has melted hearts online after it was shared on a popular social media platform.

It is not surprising that content involving dogs is popular online as there are millions of pet owners across the U.S.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, in 2018 there were 48.2 million U.S. households that had at least one dog.

The total number of pet dogs in the U.S. that year was 76.8 million, exceeding the number of pet cats in the country by more than 18 million, it added.

In the clip, the younger dog could be seen playing together with two older golden retrievers in a yard.

The pooches were clearly play fighting with one another as they rolled around in the grass and leaves. One dog lies on its back at the bottom of the heap while they wrestle and spar with each other.

Many who commented on the post shared how the clip had made them feel happy and compared the dogs to their own.

"Did someone say DOG PILE!!!" commented one TikTok user.

Another said: "It's like they do it for fun at first but then it turns serious."

While a third posted: "Cuteness overload."

Others commented "[They are] Like mine. [They] love each other" and "Snuggle puddle."

Newsweek has contacted mattrichens18 for comment.

Another clip that went viral this month appeared to show a dog in the passenger seat driving a van.

The hilarious scene showed the large dog in the passenger seat, relaxing with one paw out of the window and another on the dashboard, strikingly similar to a human pose.

User Isabelle Cortes shared the video, which was taken in Paris, and it has since been viewed more than 3.3 million times on TikTok.

Another video of a supposedly sad dog in September attracted more than 7.4 million views on the social media platform.

In the clip, Einstein the Staffordshire terrier can be seen looking into the pet camera in his home. It appeared as if he was staring with a sad expression and trying to convince his owners that he was lonely.
