When you list the soppiest, most loving dog breeds, the Rottweiler probably doesn’t feature particularly highly – this adorable video might just change that.

Rottweilers are large dogs with strong, muscular bodies that have gained a (not completely accurate) reputation as being tough guys!

If you’ve ever questioned whether Rotties have a soft side then take a look at the video below.

As popular as it is adorable...

The super cute video (which has nearly 2 million views!) shows Nala the Rottweiler and her human owner. Her owner pretends to start crying to see how Nala will react and her response is the sweetest thing you’ll see today.

When Nala sees her owner cover her face and begining to “cry” she immediately looks worried. She restlessly paces around her owner before pawing her to get her attention.

A much-needed hug!

When none of this seems to have the desired impact, Nala nuzzles her head in between her owner's hands and goes for a big, doggy hug!

Little Nala, of course, doesn't realise that these tears are her owner trying to guage how she’ll react to her sadness. And so, the pup does what comes naturally to her and immediately tries to cheer her owner up.

Not surprisingly, gorgeous Nala has become something of an Insta celebrity among pet lovers.

She has a whopping 188,000 followers on Insta who check in regularly to see videos and pictures of her and her doggy brother Axel.

Careful though, watching them might make you want to instantly adopt a Rottie. These gorgeous dogs have an unfair reputation and so often end up in shelters when owners decide they’re not the dog they’re looking for.

We’re glad to see that Nala has a loving home and an owner who understands her soppy ways.
