A jealous dog has tickled the internet with its adorable reaction. The clip, shared on the TikTok channel "alexisnicoleirl," features new mother Alexis playing with her two-month-old daughter.

The Dog Craves Attention

As she lovingly entertains her child, the puppy lies beside her on the bed. Noticing the amount of affection Alexis showers on her child, the dog becomes visibly jealous and barks to draw attention. Alexis humorously commented in her video, "He can't handle us having fun without him."

The clip quickly went viral, garnering over 335,000 views and 31,000 likes on TikTok.

Comparisons with Other Dogs

Numerous TikTok users commented on the video, drawing parallels between the dachshund's behavior and their own dogs. One user wrote, "My dog already does this, and my child isn't even born yet. He's so devoted that I can't even close the bathroom door."

Users React to the Dog's Jealous Behavior

"OMG, my dog does the same. I've had my Dodge dog since my daughter was eight, and now she's 18, and my dog is still jealous," shared a follower. Another user added, "It's so cute, but I can see how it can be annoying at times, as my adult labrador does it now, even when I'm on the phone."

Dogs are incredibly loyal to their families and, like humans, can experience a wide range of emotions. Animal experts advise quickly introducing dogs to new family members to prevent potential jealousy.

Facts About Dachshunds

Dachshunds, often known as sausage dogs or wiener dogs, are a distinctive and charming breed, famous for their long bodies and short legs. Originating from Germany, they were initially bred for hunting and burrowing for prey like badgers. Their elongated, low-slung bodies and keen noses make them excellent trackers.

Known for their brave and curious nature, dachshunds are also recognized for being stubborn and independent.

They have a lifespan of about 12-16 years and come in various sizes, coat lengths, and colors. These affectionate and loyal dogs thrive in a family environment and are known for their lively and playful personalities.
