Video of Golden Retriever Running For Grandma at a Park

This Golden Retriever Spots His Grandma From the Other End of the Park and Sprints to Her — What a Good Boy!

All dog breeds have characteristics that are specific to them. Some love to hunt, others love to be independent and explore on their own. The Golden Retriever, in addition to being a mild tempered and sweet dog, is a retriever at its core — it's in the name after all — so it's always supersweet to see them behave in ways that are instinctual.

One dog in particular is showing the world just what a good sense of smell this breed has. In a now-viral post shared to Reddit, @StarskytheGoldie is seen happily playing with a toy at the park. But then — what's that, doggo? — he smells something off in the distance, spins around, gallops toward the scent, and then immediately switches gears into a full-on sprint when he recognises that it's grandma up ahead. "Grandma surprised doggo at the park. I don't even know how he spotted her but his reaction was priceless," the Reddit caption reads. What a good boy!
