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

A heartwarming video that is capturing the hearts of cyber citizens 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, and his other arm used to carry a large gray pit bull, the dog’s tongue 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,” shows the father, dog and son crossing the street and continuing down the sidewalk.

Once the trio reached the sidewalk, it seems they are joined by a woman who, trailing close behind, is pushing a child’s three-wheeled stroller or bike that’s holding a big-boxed item.

One TikTok user suggested the little boy had to walk because his transportation was poached 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 dog is sick?”

Others said that the child’s feet are protected by his shoes but the sidewalk was 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.” While another writes, “This is actually super sweet. The pavement is probably way too hot for the dogs 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. 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 getting a lot of attention and has about 4.7 million views.

It really is adorable how this dad is expressing love for his dog and child! We wish everyone treated animals with an equal kind of love. What do you think of this dad?
