As pet parents, we will do everything to shower our fur-babies with love and affection. And that’s precisely what Aiden Michael Mann, owner of an Australian shepherd, is doing for his dog. One day, he decided to post a short video of him and his dog having a sweet moment. It has since gone viral on both TikTok and Instagram, where he posted the video.
Plum is 10-month old and deaf as well as partially blind. In the video, Aiden said that people have been asking him how he wakes up his dog without scaring her. He said that at some point, he was having a hard time doing it because Plum was skittish and would always get scared. He tried different ways, but Plum would jump at even the slightest touch.
Luckily, Aiden successfully thought of a way to wake his dog. In the video, Aiden is showed gently blowing on Plum’s muzzle. The adorable puppy then woke up with a start and immediately looked for Aiden to snuggle with him. The two looked cute, and people on the internet loved every minute of the video. It now has 13 million likes and 54 million views on TikTok.
Aiden said that Plum was a name given by his co-worker for his dog. The said co-worker was working with lots of rescues and was fostering the puppy. She brought Plum at work one day, and Aiden just fell in love with the adorable pup. When Aiden adopted the Australian shepherd, he loved the name and decided to keep it.
According to Aiden, he immediately wanted Plum because she looked like a happy dog despite her disabilities. He said that he knew Plum would be a perfect companion for his other dog, Lola. Although raising Plum was not a walk in the park, Aiden loves it because the pup is just the sweetest dog he’s ever met. The shepherd loves cuddles, laying with a ball, and hanging out with him and Lola.
