A recent TikTok video demonstrating the unflinching loyalty of our furry friends is rapidly accumulating views, likes, and smiles worldwide. The footage, captured on a pet camera, shows two eager boxer dogs springing into action to protect their home in their owner’s absence, showing their innate guarding instincts.
The clip, shared by @Jemma_And_Sb, hilariously shows one of the dogs, in its rush, tripping over the banister and, fortunately, landing on a soft couch below. All this set against a soundtrack of “oh no,” adding to the video’s comedic value. The caption “Must protect. No matter the cost,” charmingly encapsulates the dogs’ boundless enthusiasm and commitment to home protection.
Must protect. No matter the cost. #ohno #dog #dogsoftiktok #boxersoftiktok #fyp #foryou
With over 3.9 million views and 350,000 likes, this video clearly touched a chord among pet lovers, evoking amusement and affectionate comments on the dogs’ brave antics.
Boxers, as seen in this video, are well known for their protective nature. The American Kennel Club (AKC) describes them as “bright and alert, sometimes silly, but always courageous.” Beyond their amusing antics, Boxers’ loyal, loving characteristics make them cherished companions. They indeed offer the ‘whole doggy package,’ demonstrating once again the multifaceted benefits and joy of sharing our lives with these faithful companions.
