Needy Doberman Demanding Kisses Delights the Internet

A dog hilariously demanding kisses has caught the attention of the internet.

Shared on Wednesday, the TikTok video by user odddrx has gained over 670,000 views and 168,000 likes.

In the video, KornBred the dog is sitting with her owner where she is refusing to move until she has been given kisses.

This needy pooch has also caught the attention of dog-lovers elsewhere online, with a Reddit post on Thursday sharing the video with even more adoring fans.

On the subreddit r/WhatsWrongWithYourDog, the video has gained over 16,000 upvotes.

In stitches over the dog's attention-seeking behavior, many viewers added comments to share their delight. One commenter on TikTok wrote: "KornBred said less talking and more kissing mom," while another said: "That dog is spoiled with love!"

The video of the loving 2-year-old Doberman from Kansas was shared after odddrx uploaded an initial video of her unable to take a video without KornBred at the front and center of the camera. In the video, user odddrx says: "I'm trying to do a video real quick. Excuse me. Can I please?"

odddrx told Newsweek: "The video response was wonderful. She's had a handful of views in the past so I believe our authentic relationship and consistent content helped us go viral. It's a blessing and hopefully we can put out more KornBred Kontent in the future!"

Many users on TikTok sympathized with the owner's situation. One wrote: "This reminds me of my Beagle. She demands kisses and cuddles when you get home."

Another commenter said: "My dog does this too. He also likes to look other people directly in the eyes when he's being pet," while a third response attributed this to the breed and wrote: "My Dobie is exactly like this."

The American Kennel Club reports the Doberman Pinscher as the 17th most popular dog breed in the U.S. when measured against 202 breeds. The AKC description of the well-loved breed says that the dogs are: "Sleek and powerful, possessing both magnificent physique and keen intelligence, the Doberman Pinscher is one of dogkind's noblemen."

The AKC also says that the Doberman is a great family dog, reporting the breed as affectionate, good with young children and good with other dogs.

One user shared their experience with the breed: "Literally the struggle of every Doberman owner." Another wrote: "Dobies be demanding so much though," to which odddrx replied: "[It's a] full time job!"

Another commented: "My Doberman does the same thing. He'll stick his face right in my face and look into my soul when he wants something."

At the end of the video, the needy dog did indeed get the kisses she wanted. In a later comment, owner odddrx said: "Her determination is admirable!"
