It was seemingly just a box, but inside was a small puppy called Pippa. Not aware of the new arrival, the couple’s older dog Wallace appeared over the moon to have a small playmate.
In the video posted to TikTok by owner Alma, Wallace greets Pippa for the first time. Hundreds of viewers have commented about how cute the captured moment is.
Lots of cuddling
Speaking to the Daily Star, Alma said she was not surprised at Wallace’s behaviour when first meeting Pippa. “He absolutely loves puppies and other Golden Retrievers,” she said, and added, “They love each other and there are lots of other videos and pics of them cuddling.”
Pippa and Wallace - both Golden Retrievers - will soon be the same size, but for now the smaller Pippa is a treat to behold.
The breed is one of the most trustworthy and loyal. Retrievers have had a variety of roles over the years, but are now considered the perfect home dog.
They remain young at heart well into later life, and are exceptionally tolerant of people young and old, and of other dogs.
Retrievers are also very trainable, but they need a lot of mental and physical stimulation to keep them happy. Then there is the coat: which takes a substantial amount of grooming!
