Labrador's Adorable Reaction to Puppy in Box Goes Viral Online

A video of the adorable moment a Labrador was surprised by a puppy in a box has gone viral online, with more than 7.3 million views.

In the footage, which was shared to TikTok by a woman called Holly Doran, we can see someone carrying over a basket and then placing it on the floor next to a large black dog.

Text overlaying the video, explains: "Bringing home my new pup [heart-eyed emoji]."

The dog then begins wagging its tail enthusiastically and leaping about the room, before the lid is finally lifted from the box and we can see a tiny golden Labrador puppy.

The larger pet begins sniffing about its cute new housemate, as the puppy also wags its tail in delight.

The adorable scene then cuts to a close up of the puppy sleeping.

Doran captioned the adorable footage, which can be watched here, writing: "I forgot about this [sad-face emoji] [sad-face emoji] [crying-face emoji] #fyp #puppy #puppycheck."

Since the video was posted on August 9, 2021, the clip has garnered more than 1.1 million likes and 26,200 shares.

Many people also rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the adorable clip.

One TikTok user, Joshua Horner, wrote: "The way he came to his dad and was like A NEW DOG OMG [oh my god]."

Another person, Jamie Jones, added: "The tail was moving so fast i thought the older doggo was gonna fly away [heart-eyed emoji]."

GABRIELLE shared: "The fact that he's so gentle with the puppy and so excited coming to you!!! [sad face emoji]."

Feederhayfam exclaimed: "Omg [oh my god] the moment she opens the box the happiness just explodes from the black pup."

Recently, another clip featuring Labradors also went viral on TikTok.

The tear-jerking video shows a sick dog, who was suffering from cancer, being pulled along in a dog bed on wheels because she was unable to walk.

The footage was shared to the social media site by an account called MyLabrachildren. In it we can see two other similar-looking dogs—one brown, one blond—flanking the wheeled bed, their leashes attached, as if they are taking their friend for a walk.
