Some pups are highly protective of their parents, family, and property. When not properly trained or socialized, this can prove a huge problem when Dad or Mom wants some friends over, or when Mom and Dad wants to go on a trip with their precious pooch. Even after becoming well socialized, however, some pups just really love guarding their prized parents!
This Dachshund pup is a clear example of such a pup. Defying a pup’s normal fear of heights, he happily perches atop his Mom’s shoulders, watching the strangers passing by outside with attentive eyes. He barks at them often too, trying to scare them away! Poor Mom, having to deal with his loud volume just right next to her ear!
Adorably enough, this pup climbs up onto Mom’s shoulders so often that he has the nickname of ‘parrot dog’! We say that is a suitable nickname for this pup, and an adorable one too!
