People love their dogs and, thankfully, this feeling is mutual.
And one canine on TikTok has exemplified this, with her adorable habit of her hugging her owner every time they leave the house.
In the clip, which was shared to the app by an account called Lunatheminicockapoo, we can see a man walking down a corridor in an apartment building.
Text overlaying the video, which has 4.2 million views, reads: “My dog gives me a thank you hug every time we go out.”
Once the two have approached the elevator we then see Luna, who is a mix between a cocker spaniel and poodle, jump up onto her hind legs and wrap her front paws round the man’s body, in a hug-like gesture.
The adorable footage, which can be watched here, is captioned: “It’s the cutest thing ever!! [sad-face emoji] [crying-face emoji] #tiktokdogs.”
The clip has gained lots of traction since it was shared on October 30, with more than 632,000 likes.

A TikTok user, Geegee, wrote: “The dog has more respect than some humans.”

Another clip which recently went viral on TikTok showed a golden retriever’s close relationship with a 4-year-old girl who has a genetic disorder.
In the video, shared to the app by an account called Goldenindiejoe, we can see a dog next to a child who is sitting in a supportive chair in a bathroom.
The adorable animal then reaches out to gently pet the little girl’s hand, as the overlaying text reads: “Indie is new to our family but he treats our special needs daughter so gentle.”
