With only one video, bichon frisé Ancco has conquered the hearts of millions of Instagram users – and rightly so! This clip would melt anyone's heart.

The clip filmed in the living room of Ancco's owners shows the puppy standing on his hind legs and resting his front paws on the marble-top table in front of him.

There is a wooden bowl on it. And that's exactly what Ancco is targeting.

Again and again he jumps up, stretching out as far as he can. But even as his fluffy body is completely horizontal, he's still too short to get to that tasty treat.

Tirelessly, the little dog gives it his all. Ancco keeps trying, at one point ever brushing against the bowl with his muzzle. So close, yet still so far away!

In the end, however, the perseverant pooch runs out of breath and stops. Exhausted, he looks at the table, then his disappointed gaze wanders in the direction of the camera.

Originally, the clip was uploaded to Ancco's own account, which also has a sizeable following of more than 90,000 fans.

But then the social network itself stumbled across the cute dog and shared the video on the official Instagram account with the words, "Jump to it. Meet Ancco, a very active 3-year-old bichon frise who is inches away from a tasty yogurt snack."

And it worked: only a day later, almost 17 million users had already watched the clip of the adorable acrobat.

"This puppy is getting more exercise than I do," one follower joked and another commented, "He's so hungry, haha".

But most of them filled the comment section with words like "cute" or "sweet" and thousands of heart emojis.
