A recent clip posted by user @adventureswithmase has taken the internet by storm. This video showcases the remarkable swimming skills of two canine companions, Mason the golden retriever, and Loki the border collie.

The star of the show, Mason, earned himself the affectionate title of “a 4-wheel drive dog” from his owner. As shown in the video, Mason eagerly uses all four legs to paddle gracefully through the water, exhibiting a level of skill that leaves viewers in awe.

In contrast, Loki, the charismatic border collie, takes a unique approach to aquatic locomotion. The underwater footage captured in the video reveals Loki’s peculiar swimming style, which can only be described as “2 wheel drive.” Unlike Mason’s synchronized four-legged strokes, Loki propels himself forward using only his two front paws, an endearing spectacle that has garnered widespread attention.


Replying to @Hannah Shelton loki’s gears are a little rusty but they still work! 😅👍 #dogsoftiktok #dog #underwater #dogswimming

But that’s not where Loki’s aquatic talents end. The video captures the moment when Loki switches gears, quite literally, by utilizing three legs for propulsion. One of his hind legs kicks out in an unexpected maneuver, further showing his adaptability in the water.

The video’s humorous portrayal of Loki has struck a chord with TikTok users worldwide. In just a few days, the clip has amassed an astonishing 6.3 million views and received over 617,000 likes, a testament to the internet’s fascination with our furry friends’ remarkable skills.
