Social media users can't get enough of Sugar and Ellie, two dogs whose owner says are "always up to no good".

When Brooke Byers Keck of South Carolina shared a video of her two pets on her TikTok page, she was shocked at the response: "Sugar is BLOWING up on tiktok, over 2 million views in less than 24 hours!" she wrote.

Most of the hilarity comes from Sugar the English Labrador, who seems to enjoy nothing more than jumping off the couch at home – over and over again.

And when the 3-month-old puppy wants to play, he regularly picks a victim to land on – sometimes the family cat, but most often Ellie, a one-year-old golden retriever.

The clip shows Sugar getting ready for her pounce from the sofa and just as Ellie quietly dozes off on the floor, the puppy starts to jump. Ellie appears unamused – a true sibling rivalry!

Internet viewers are loving Sugar and Ellie

Followers are loving the pair, who have their own Instagram page dedicated to their partnership. The video gained thousands of likes and comments within a few days.

Many likened the Labrador's jumping skills to those of a professional wrestler: "Maybe he used to be a WWE superstar" or "If John Cena were a dog" are just some of the comparisons from amused viewers.

"Once the puppy grows, it'll be all the more entertaining," quips another.

At least there's a fair amount of sympathy for Ellie from some commenters: "The golden retriever knows exactly what's about to happen and just lets it happen, I love it."

She's sure got a bunch of internet fans routing for the "underdog".
