A heartwarming video of a Golden Retriever warming up his vocal cords before howling at fire-truck sirens has taken the internet by storm. Shared by Caralyn Corso on TikTok, the video shows her 3-year-old Golden Retriever, Charles, giving a few tentative “woofs” before letting out a full-fledged howl as a fire-truck siren wails in the distance.

Charles, who lives with Caralyn in Seattle, has been vocalizing his responses to fire-truck sirens since he was a young pup, around 5 to 6 months old. Caralyn reveals that Charles seems to only respond to fire-truck sirens, remaining indifferent to the sounds of police trucks or ambulances. This intriguing behavior has earned Charles considerable popularity on TikTok, with his vocal warm-ups and enthusiastic howls delighting viewers.
