Golden Retriever Has 'Puppy Tantrum' in Adorable Viral Video

A video has gone viral online showing an adorable golden retriever puppy throwing a temper tantrum, and it has been watched more than 2.2 million times.

In the clip, which was shared to the app by Caligoldenretrievers, we can see two little puppies on an artificial lawn.

Text overlaying the footage, which can be seen here, reads: "What a puppy tantrum looks like."

One of the pups can then be seen barking into the camera as the text translates the high-pitched yaps to: "I said... I want the milk truck [its mother]... now!"

The adorable pooch then continues barking into the camera, and heading toward the person filming.

"You're not listening to me! Go get mommy now! No!" the text adds.

The adorable footage has gained lots of traction online since it was shared on January 2, having attracted more than 502,400 likes and 9,385 shares.

One TikTok user, Timmm, wrote: "Such rage contained in a small fluffy package."

Recently another golden retriever went viral on TikTok, in footage showing the sweet moment a dog befriended a window cleaner.

In the clip, which was posted on TikTok by an account called Pawbrey, we can see the fluffy pet standing in the living room of an apartment as a man on a harness lowers himself into view to begin cleaning.

The pet then excitedly barks and leaps up wagging her tail, before then collecting a fish-shaped toy to offer her new pal.

Newsweek have contacted Caligoldenretrievers for comment.
