Owner cuddles Rottweiler after no one wanted to go near him at the dog park

A misunderstood Rottweiler was left sad and dejected after a trip to the dog park.

A video of the pooch looking upset has gone viral on social media as everyone is falling in love with the adorable animal.

"He went to the park today and nobody wanted to play with him. He doesn’t understand why people ignore him," the TikTok video reads.

The viral video, shared by TikTokker @nala_the_needy_rottie, has been viewed more than nine million times.


The 14 second clip shows Nala's puppy brother Axel being comforted by his owner after a failed trip to the dog park.

Axel can be seen in the video lying on his owner's chest looking sad and sulky.

Luckily, there were plenty of people ready and waiting on social media ready to comfort the perturbed pooch, with many saying they would fly over and give the depressed doggo cuddles immediately.


One social media user said: "It's because he's big and beautiful. He has his momma to love him. My four babies don't understand either but I love them for the whole world."

A second user said: "He’d get huge amounts of love from me."

While a third added: "My pit bull feels the exact same way but she gets all the love she needs at home."

While pit bulls are a banned breed in Australia due to their aggressive nature, Rottweilers are not.


They do, however, have a bad reputation as they are large, powerful, and can be dangerous when they attack home intruders.

Others claimed that it is fair enough that some are wary of larger dogs.

One user said: "Ok. I have to ask. How do we know [that he is nice]? A lot of people hate when [my large dog and I] get close."

Another added: "I had a rottie girl for over 10 years. They are the sweetest but not to be trusted among strangers."


Another said they were actually afraid of the large dog breed: "I want so badly to lose my trauma of Rottweilers. It’s the only breed I truly can’t come close to."

Other videos of Nala and Axel the two Rottweilers show the two dogs enjoying baths, snuggling, and being general affectionate giant teddy bears.

Another video shared by the account shows the adorable twin doggos smothering their owner with love.


The video caption reads: "What people would really say about Rottweilers if they didn’t have a bad reputation."

The video then lists that Rottweilers 'love unconditionally, never leave your side. are so sweet and soft natured, and want to feel cared for'.
