The golden has stolen a bunch of things, including a sweater, shoes, and "dad's undies!"

TikTokers love him and the "Part 3" clip has gone super viral, with more than 2 million views and counting.

Kobe's mom Danielle Vanos spoke to Newsweek about her dog's constant thieving.

"He steals constantly. We like to call him Klepto Kobe. We are currently keeping a running tally of everything he has stolen this year. So far, as of April 14, he has taken 111 unique items."

Kepto Kobe will apparently steal anything and everything that strikes his fancy.

"We're currently preparing for a baby coming in July, and his favorite thing to steal recently is baby clothes while I'm preparing the nursery, He also got his paws on a few items during the painting of the baby's room," Danielle said.

Yet, Kobe's humans aren't too mad that their dog steals their stuff – they think it's adorable. Hopefully, they'll still think it's cute when the new baby comes.
