A dog excited to see his owner at the airport has been viewed more than 2.2 million times on TikTok, prompting one user to say, “Don’t you ever leave him again.”
In the video, titled “Dog Sees Hooman Again at the Airport,” an incredibly excited red toy poodle named Romeo rushes to his owner at an airport, apparently breaking up after some time. He runs about, hind legs and tail mad, overcome with excitement, and even jumps with all four legs off the ground to give her a lick in the face.
The text explains: “I haven’t seen my dog in a very long time. He missed me so much that he cried when he saw me. It’s very hard to be separated from each other. I don’t care [want] to travel without him.”
Red Toy Poodle
According to The Happy Puppy Site, the red toy poodle is a variation of the more famous apricot or brown toy poodle. “They carry the recessive Rufus gene, which changes the appearance of an apricot or brown coat,” the site explains.
Poodles come in three different sizes, toy, miniature and standard with the toy poodle measuring just 9-11 inches.
The Happy Puppy Site says that Miniature and Toy Poodles were selectively bred to be the perfect city dog, compact and friendly. Another great thing about a toy poodle is that they don’t shed their fur, making poodle crossbreeds popular with anyone who suffers from allergies.
Despite their small size and adaptable personality, they are an athletic breed by nature and need plenty of exercise and mental stimulation.
“His Little Legs”
The excess of cuteness proved too much for some users with one person writing in the comments, “I literally cried over this video.” Another said, “HIS LITTLE LEGS,” in a comment that garnered over 2,500 likes.
Many users shared their own experiences with excited puppies.
“When I saw my dog after 3 months I literally thought he was going to have a heart attack, he was so happy,” said one.
Another commented: “I left my dog with my parents for almost 3 weeks when I had to go abroad. The little man was bursting with excitement when I got home.”
One user mused, “I’m struggling with that now too, love my beagle. Not sure how I’ll travel without him anymore.”
Almost all users thought the video was cute, but one user wrote, “Everyone thinks this is so cute, but as someone who is afraid of dogs, a dog doing this to me would be my worst nightmare.”
