The hilarious clip was posted on Instagram (opens in new tab) under the handle, ‘Dog 20’, and has already garnered over 6.75 million views in the first 20 hours of posting.
With the caption, ‘This is Draco, he shows his love in a special way’, we see a Doberman putting its mouth around another dog, and not appearing to want to let go.
Another caption reads, ‘He’s a 10 but he’s too clingy’. The other pup in question is called Katana, and is apparently “used to it.”
