This is the heartwarming moment when a daddy pit bull meets his puppies for the first time just two days after they were born.
The loving dad is seen standing guard over the new puppies, and then both mum and dad lick them into shape with a quick wash.
The owner of the dogs and puppies, a preschool teacher named Stephanie, posted a clip of the first time meeting on her TikTok page, @tu_muneca, where she revealed that in total there had been eight puppies born
The 31-year-old from Southern California captioned the video with the message: “When everyone tells you to not let daddy meet the pups until four weeks but you’re raised with love and are the sweetest boy.
“Met them on the second day, amazes me that every time he heard them crying he runs to see what’s wrong and helps mommy lick them clean.”
She said that the mum was called Blue and that the father of the puppies was called Kilo and that she had owned them both as there were two months old.
Despite the fearsome reputation she said she had no qualms about leaving the adult dogs, both Bluenose pitfalls, together with the pups and added: “My dogs aren’t aggressive, they are very sweet and loving animals and their inside dogs so they are very spoiled.”
She added some people had told her that there is also a risk that the mother might be violent but added: “I know both of my pupils are really huge sweethearts.”
Although the litter of pups was an accident as both dogs are just a year old Stephanie said there were no regrets and she was glad to have them.
