Golden retriever overwhelmed with emotion after seeing puppies for first time

A loving golden retriever’s reaction to first meeting some puppies has melted the hearts of the internet.

In the adorable footage, dog Bailey is seen excitedly waiting beside a bed as his owner Taras carries a basket with the puppies in.

He then lifts the fluffballs out onto the bed.

At first, Bailey looks confused by the smaller creatures but quickly learns how to approach them and, before long, is seen affectionately sniffing them.

Despite his far larger size, the caring dog seems to recognise that he can’t throw his weight around without risking injuring the pups.

The video has been seen more than 18 million times since it was shared to the dog's dedicated YouTube channel This is Bailey last month.

“He's overwhelmed with emotion, very touching,” one user wrote.

Another commented: “Look how fast their tails wag when they get close to the retriever. It's so cute.”

A third added: “It’s adorable how quickly he learned that he had to be gentle and not jump up or he’ll scare them.”

In the comments section, Bailey's owners explained the puppies were found wandering a road without their mum and so they decided to take them in temporarily while they find them a new home.

It is not the first time Bailey’s antics have gone viral.
