VIDEO: This Viral Pup Swims With Dolphins


Published at 11:08am 26th April 2016.

A heart warming viral clip shows a dog jumping for joy and playing among a pod of dolphins.

Kira the Labrador, also known as ‘dolphin spotter’, was captured by YouTube user Earth Touch. Watch below as she pounces off the boat and has the time of her life within the water.

The footage was captured in South Africa and has had more than 2 million views and counting. The upbeat soundtrack ‘Animal’ also features alongside the clip.

After all of the fun - Kira can then be seen exhausted lying on the boat.

Kira and her owner Noleen Withers take regular boat trips to study dolphins in South Africa.

The labrador is no stranger to hanging out with dolphins and this footage shares the beautiful moment these species come together and unite.

Look out for Kira wearing a life jacket – could it get anymore cuter?
