Golden Retriever Puppies Adorably “Attack” Man

This story originally appeared at Shareably.

Warning: The following video features extreme levels of “awww” and full-frontal cuteness.

Dogs, being descended from wolves are still intrinsically pack-animals. Because of this, they operate in groups to take down their targets. Even a group of pups together can be a formidable force for an unsuspecting victim.

But where wolves use their pack dynamic to bring down large prey, nowadays dogs can use their pack strength to bring victims down for other reasons…


To bring them down with affection!

And what breed is more notorious for wanting to play games than the humble golden retriever? Bred and loved for their happy-go-lucky temperaments and friendly demeanors, they’re the perfect companion and the go-to breed for families.

Simply put, golden retrievers just want to have fun!


Specifically, their puppies are ruthless in the way they dish out cuddles. A group of golden retriever puppies is like a swarm of locusts, except instead of leaving devastation in their wake, they leave laughter and joy. Now that’s a plague I can get behind!

After the puppies are all released from their enclosure, all heck breaks loose.

Like a pack ravenous for their next frolic, they erupt from behind their gates like a clumsy hoard. If they didn’t get easily distracted by leaves and trip over their over-sized paws they would be a formidable threat. When they locate the unsuspecting target of their next attack, they waste no time in swarming him.

This poor man is so frightened that he can only laugh and giggle.

In breeder training they teach you that to escape an attack such as this, instead of playing dead, you should pretend to be having the time of your life. You should giggle, squirm and smile. While it may appear that this man is living a dog lover’s dream…he is really fighting for his life.

This will fool the puppies into believing that you’ve had enough affection and cuddling and they will soon leave you alone.

Unfortunately for this man, these puppies are relentless, and they assault the man with love even though he has followed instructions. This poor helpless victim has succumbed to the might of a viscous pack of pups.

At last, he breaks free from the hoard, traumatized, but unscathed.
