We know that dogs are really protective when it comes to protecting their puppys, but this video is another story. This amazing footage shows an over-protective golden retriever refusing to let its owner shake hands with his puppy. The four-year-old dog called ‘Adi’ had fathered a litter of puppies and seems reluctant to take any risks with his newborn. The golden retriever, which lives in the Chinese city of Yantai, in the eastern Shandong province, is filmed as it leans over the puppy as the owner tries to hold its paw.
Yet Adi brushes his owner aside and shelters the puppy, bringing it under his body and hugging it. The owner says ‘shake hands’ in an attempt to reach the puppy’s paw, but the clever pooch presents his paw instead. The owner tells Adi ‘I don’t want to shake hands with you’, as the pooch remains adamant his puppy will remain under his loving hold.
The rest of Adi’s puppies had been sold or given away, according to Reddit comments, which perhaps explains why he appears reluctant to let go of his baby.
