A dog desperate for a good old fashioned hug has become an internet sensation for his perseverance in butting into his owner’s time with his girlfriend.

Arlo, a Bernese mountain dog, was filmed casually photo-bombing his owner Ally Nichole and husband Nash Bettenhausen in the clip shared earlier this week.

It begins with the pooch leaning back on Ally with his face upwards.

Clearly still unhappy that he is not getting the attention he thinks he deserves, Arlo then pushes himself further into view.

The pooch then completely obscures the camera view with his face as the couple laugh.

Birdie - the Bernese Mountain Dog - hangs out in her house waiting to go for a walk.

The comical video was initially shared on Instagram by @arlo.the.floof, with the comical caption: "I don’t think you guys see me... here I am, pet me!”

It has since been upvoted more than 130,000 times after making its way to the front page of Reddit, attracting hundreds of comments.

“It’s so cute, I literally just exploded (I’m typing this from heaven),” one wrote. Another commented: “I want this in my life.”

A third joked: “No girlfriend, only doggo.”

And a fourth viewers was simply jealous, saying: “What a lucky guy. I wish i had someone to cuddle like that. The girl is just a bonus.”

Videos of our furry friends have been proving more popular than ever during the depressing state of affairs that is 2020.

One pooch’s overly-excited reaction to being told it was time for a walk gave viewers a much-needed lift.

And a German shepherd less than impressed at seeing a cat on a leash had those who watched it creasing.
