It’s no secret that animals do the cutest things and dogs are no exception to this rule.
We’ve recently seen one giant dog keep acting like a puppy trying to sit on his owner’s lap and another had the best reaction to being reunited with his sibling in a park.
Currently it’s a female pitbull that’s got everyone going ‘awwwww’ after a video of the dog, called Nova, went viral on TikTok.
Shared on the account @maxpotentialdogtraining, by a man named Ryan, the clip shows Nova standing over his wife who is sitting down on the sofa.
Text on the screen claims this is the moment the dog realised the woman was pregnant.
Nova stands protectively over the expectant mum, with her front legs either side of her waist.
The dog stays this way for a while, staring straight at the woman, before gently lowering her head down onto her owner’s tummy.
More than one million people have watched the touching video, with over 187,000 liking it.
Hundreds also commented to share their thoughts, praising how clever dogs are.
One person wrote: “They always know! I think they can smell it?”
Another replied claiming that dogs can pick up on the changes in the body during pregnancy, sometimes by smell.
A third shared their own pregnancy story, saying: “My dog would lay on my belly. She freaked out when I brought him home.”
“When a dog puts their face up like that it usually is them showing their dominance and the fact she puts her head down to the baby shows she’s gonna protect it and the mum doesn’t have to worry awh,” replied someone else.
A different user added: “Our old Staffie did this too. She never left my bump.”
“We don’t deserve dogs,” proclaimed a sixth.
The TikTok user later shared an update, showing Nova and their other pets meeting the baby for the first time and it’s as sweet as you’d think.
