Three dogs living in Cologne, Germany have become internet celebrities after their owner shared a charming footage of them on the famous video-sharing app TikTok. In the video, Mojo, Rana, and Mateo can be seen glancing through old photos of themselves on their owner’s smartphone before recreating their poses. The footage has garnered millions of views, comments, and likes so far.
The three doggos do adorable poses daily, which Vanessa and Rafael, their owners, photograph and share on their social media accounts. They also discuss their trips and training techniques with their pets on their social media posts.
In the 50-second video that went viral, the owner showed photos of his pets to the camera before turning the phone around for the dogs to see. The dogs imitated the poses after looking at the images, much to the joy of their TikTok followers.
Vanessa claimed that she and Rafael have Portuguese ancestry but they were born and raised in Germany. Mojo is also from Germany, but he lived with two households before being adopted by Vanessa and Rafael. Rana was born in Portugal and possesses a southern temperament.
Mateo, on the other hand, is cheerful. According to Vanessa, he completes the family completely. Mateo has one missing paw and was rescued in Crete. Because of him, a portion of their blog discusses what it’s like to have a disabled dog.
In addition, the social media account of the dog family contains a part on “free-shaping.” In other words, they advocate encouraging dogs to learn skills on their own using rewards and positive reinforcement.
In the viral video, many individuals were astonished and curious as to how the dogs accomplished the trick of recreating their old photos. They praised how adorable and intelligent the dogs are. Others, however, believed that the video was played backward, giving the impression that the dogs replicated the photos.
