Red Retriever stuns the internet by appearing to speak to camera in viral video

A dog has gone viral after a video of the retriever appearing to say “mom” was shared on social media, leaving the internet in a frenzy.

The video, posted to TikTok by Hiep659us290, shows the animal howling, making a sound very similar to what users in the comments described as “mom”.

Although dogs don’t talk, they sometimes understand us when we do! According to the American Psychological Association, dogs can understand over 150 words.

Dogs can understand words and signals, and the most intelligent, those in the top 20% of canine intelligence, can learn 250 words. The mental capacities of dogs are close to those of a human child aged 2 to 2.5 years.

A study from the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Bari in Italy shows that dogs can also understand emotions.

The experiment, conducted by the Italian scientists on 26 dogs, involved showing them images of different human expressions and then analyzing their heart rate and stress levels by looking at them.

The results showed that the dogs had stronger reactions when exposed to strong emotions like anger or happiness.

The clip, posted on TikTok last Saturday, went viral, receiving more than 1.2 million likes, 20,600 comments and 61,600 shares.

One user, Monique, commented, “Hello gorgeous pup!!! yes whatever you want take it.” And Tim Donnell said, “For God’s sake… some give water to the poor.”

CJ wrote: “So beautiful.” And Linda Costa said, “Mom.” Shani said, “Whatever he asks, give it to him and more.”

Another user, Funkerlug, pointed out, “The only dog ​​I’ve ever seen use a proper indoor voice.” And Aeroannah joked, “Is this some kind of pyramid scheme to get me to buy a golden retriever?…Because I totally will!”

The Mauritian paradise island commented, “I would hug and kiss this cute tart after hearing from mum.”

Lora Jones said: “I don’t know what they want but I’m asking you to give it to them right now!!!” And another user called Tracie Barrass wrote, “Oh my god this face is to die for so beautiful.”

SoEinFlooo said, “I feel like I owe him BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT.” And YoureJustJelly added, “I tried to tell people the SAME THING but no one listens when it’s me! Maybe they’ll listen to you instead.”
