Gordo the dog lives with his owner Gaby in Boise, Idaho, and he's obviously enchanted by butterflies.

Over the weekend, his owner posted an almost overwhelmingly adorable clip on her TikTok account and instantly made Gordo into a certified internet celebrity.

The video shows the little dog outdoors with his favorite chew toy when something else suddenly grabs his attention. Two beautiful butterflies float around in front of his nose and mesmerize the pooch, to the point that he drops the tennis ball in astonishment.

Clearly fascinated, Gordo stares at the elegant creatures before one of them decides to settle on his muzzle. The whole scene is incredibly serene – helped by the soundtrack – as the puppy remains perfectly still and just stares at his new friend.

The butterfly then takes off and flies off with its companion, with an entranced Gordo closely following their flight.

Almost 19 million views stacked up over three days as TikTokers couldn't take their eyes off this magical moment. Add another 5.5 million likes into the mix and you've got a viral hit on your hands.

The comments had only love for the furry star: "This is literally the most beautiful video in the world," wrote one user, while another added, "There's no way this isn't a new "Nintendogs" just too perfect."

Spurred on by the amazing success, Gaby followed up with the next Gordo video a day later, giving users more of what they wanted.

The second clip is a compilation of the tiny pup swimming along with the ever-present tennis ball, frolicking in the grass, and just generally having the time of his life.

This probably won't be the last time you hear of this budding four-legged influencer!
