As parents, we do whatever it takes to protect our young ones. And if there’s even a tiny chance that a given situation may not be completely safe, we put an end to it immediately. And this paternal instinct extends to animals — especially man’s best friend.In the video below, a man offers his hand to the puppy to shake.
But papa dog is hesitant and proceeds to wrap his paw around his puppy to bring him in closely. And the overly protective dad doesn’t stop there…The dog then hunkers down on top of the puppy to provide full protection. Judging by the dog’s playful manner and constantly wagging tail, we chalk this one up to paternal instincts rather than anything to do with the man personally.
It’s just what parents do!
Isn’t it heartwarming to see the dad take such measures to ensure his offspring’s safety?
Dogs are so smart and loving, and they seem to find new ways to show it all the time.
Watch the video below and let us know your thoughts on it — we think it’s too adorable!
