A video (below) of a loyal dog stopping a cat from attacking their owner has gone viral.
The video was posted on Imgur on Feb. 22 and already has over 4 million views.
In the brief clip, the dog watches as the feline tucks its legs under in preparation for a strike.
The dog sees it coming, and leaps in between the cat and their owner, Emily, who originally posted the video on her Tumblr blog on Feb. 2.
