Small Dog Chases Terrified Toddler in Hilarious CCTV Footage

CCTV footage of a young boy being chased by a small dog has gone viral on TikTok, owing to the youngster's terrified reaction.

In the video, which was shared to the app by an account named the1johnny, we can see a front yard and a grassy area.

Text overlaying the clip then reads: "So y'all now I know my lil brother's biggest fear... dogs."

The little boy, who is wearing a blue T-shirt and shorts, then runs into view screaming at the top of his lungs.

The child is being chased by a small dog, and sprints towards the grass, as a man follows behind begging the child to "stop!"

Commentary on the video then reveals: "Y'all I'm screaming," alongside some laughing-face emojis.

The animal follows the kid even when he switches direction and his panic only subsides when the man manages to pick him up off the ground as the pet leaps up at his feet.
