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.
Emily wrote: "my dog took a bullet for me."
The dog appears to give the cat a brief whisper in his ear after the gentle takedown; no word on what was said.
