As Cleo turns back smiling at her owner, seemingly happy that her canine companion hasn’t noticed, the yellow-furred hound slowly begins to stalk towards her.
After a few seconds of the duo hilariously staring each other off, the two finally greet each other and begin running excitedly around the grassy field.
Since uploading the funny footage to TikTok, the dog’s spy-like behaviour has been viewed over 14 million times and gained almost three million likes.
Several people left their reactions in the comments section, one person said: “I love when dogs become invisible to other dogs when they crouch down.”
A TikTok user questioned: “Is that a Shepherd or a bunny. Too cute.”
One dog lover replied: “I love how the golden plays along like ‘you guys hear something?'”
Another comment jokingly said: “I think it’s a cat in a German Shepherd disguise.”
