This Dad Praised For Choosing To Carry His Large Dog Instead His Small Son

This Dad Praised For Choosing To Carry His Large Dog Instead His Small Son

A heartwarming video that is capturing the hearts of internet users shows a man carrying his large dog in his arms, with his small child walking next to him.

Luz Elena, a resident of Mexico, captured a video of a father with one arm reaching down to hold the hand of his small son, while his other arm is used to carry a large gray pit bull. The dog’s tongue is wagging as his head drapes over the man’s shoulder. Elena’s sweet and hilarious TikTok video, titled “When your priority is your dog, not the child,” depicts the father, dog, and son crossing the street and continuing down the sidewalk.

Upon reaching the sidewalk, it appears that the trio is joined by a woman who is closely following behind, pushing a child’s three-wheeled stroller or bike that holds a big-boxed item.

One TikTok user suggested that the little boy had to walk because his transportation was taken by his mother. "No one mentioned the mom in the back with the push trike. The kid is walking because mom put something in the trike. Maybe the dog is sick?"

Others noted that the child’s feet are protected by his shoes, but the sidewalk might be too hot for the dog’s paws. "The puppy’s legs are burning, and the child is wearing shoes so it’s better to carry the puppy." Another comment reads, "This is actually super sweet. The pavement is probably way too hot for the dog's paws so he is carrying him."

Most users praised the dad for carrying the dog. "He is showing a lot of empathy and responsibility for his pet and his son because he takes him by the hand. A thousand blessings," writes one person. Another, relating to this father’s love for both the child and dog, adds: "Super dad. I would have done the same. The kid has shoes on and the doggy doesn’t. It looks hot too. Plus his mom was there, maybe he wanted to walk."

Luz posted this adorable video more than one year ago, but it’s still receiving a lot of attention and has garnered about 4.7 million views. You can watch the heartwarming video on TikTok.
