Sonny, an American Staffordshire Terrier, has gone viral for being one stubborn little guy!

Even though the terrier has his own big, comfy bed on the floor, he wants to sleep in bed with his owners – and there just isn't enough room.

In a recent TikTok video, Sonny's owner can be heard asking him to get down from the bed, and the dog's reaction is to ignore her!

"When you aren't allowed on the bed so you pretend you're deaf and invisible," Sonny's mom captioned the video.

"Get down!" she pleads with her dog. "Sonny, don't ignore me."

In the clip, Sonny hilariously darts his eyes around the room and freezes - refusing to make eye contact with his owner.

His other owner lies next to him in bed and tried to stifle his laughter at the dog's resolve.
