If you are looking for a way to cheer up after an especially bad day at work, look no further. I dare anyone to watch this video and not crack up, especially when accompanied by the music. YouTuber Callum Lenton uploaded a video of a happy puppy at a pet store and it deserves all the attention in the world.
The pup, enclosed in one of the stores glass cages is dancing happily with a sign that reads “I AM SOLD”. He’s obviously very excited to finally be heading home with someone. He paws at the glass and shimmies his hips back and forth like he has been waiting his whole life for this moment (he probably has).
Possibly a shih tzu, the small dog has the most adorable face as it happily moves around. His little steps fit perfectly to the music that has been added, “KK Ska” from the popular Nintendo game Animal Crossing.
Many people originally jumped on the video with negative comments about puppy mills, as a large number of pet stores across the country get their animals from breeders with improper care or space. Mills can be breeding grounds for disease and animal cruelty, something that police forces and animal rights groups are trying to prevent.
Reddit user GlovesGoneWild responded to the puppy mill concerns, claiming that their spouse works at the store and is the one who shot the video in the first place. They assured people that this is a locally owned and operated business that has been a part of the community for 25 years, and acquires their animals as humanely as possible.
Most of their pets have come from shelters or rescues, the user claims, instead of the mills that would sell off unhealthy and mistreated pups. They also claim to give care and assistance even after the animal is purchased and taken home.
While the story isn’t confirmed, it’s definitely one everyone wants to believe. This pup is too adorable to imagine growing up in the cramped dark quarters of a mill. Just watch him dance, and he’ll make you forget any of those bad visions.
