Dog or a demon? This Rottweiler becomes a TikTok sensation
What's wrong with this animal? That's what many TikTok users asked after they watched this TikTok video of Ryan Prater and his Rottweiler named Bear.
In the clip, Ryan patiently attempts to calm the dog calm, while trying his best to hold him in place. The animal seems super aggressive. He bares his teeth and growls like he's ready to attack.
What's making Bear so angry? It's simple: he really doesn't like getting his nails cut. Not very many dogs like getting their nails trimmed or, as in this case, ground down, so his displeasure isn't all that surprising. But because the big Rottweiler's reaction is so loud and dramatic, it causes quite stir on TikTok.
Just twelve hours after its release, the clip already had more than six million views and one million likes. Take a look at this dog's dramatic reaction to nail grinding yourself. Make sure you have the sound on.
Ryan says the dog isn't angry
Some commenters express concern, while others found the clip funny. Examples include:
- "Oh hell nah that is no dog that is a demon"
- "Try pouring holy water on it might survive longer'"
- "He's so aggressive yet cooperative at the same time"
Many users are really surprised by Bear's threatening growl, but Ryan provides the explanation in another video.
Bear's unusual behavior is a result of the fact that Ryan took him in when he was just 13 days old, so the pup didn't grow up with other dogs. His owner says Bear doesn't know that certain sounds indicate anger or aggression. Ryan says that growling to Bear is just a noise like any other. According to Ryan, when Bear gets furious, he barks.
As dangerous as the Rottweiler may seem at the beginning of the clip, it's clear that Ryan is in control of Bear.
