An extremely protective pit bull-boxer reacts aggressively to his owner’s boyfriend every time the man tries to touch his pregnant girlfriend’s stomach, in one viral video.
The dog, Tebow, reacts to each attempt by barking, standing on two legs and biting just to keep the woman’s boyfriend away. According to the video description, Tebow wasn’t trained to act that way.
“The dog is not vicious and is not a danger to anyone,” the description reads. “He simply has decided no one should be messing with that belly!”
According to Right Wing News, dogs closely observe their owners' behavior patterns and begin to act differently as a reaction. Animals can pick up on a change in a woman's body language and her family members' regard toward her. Many dogs return to their normal behavior following the birth of a baby.
To date, the video has been viewed over 1 million times.
