This overprotective Rottweiler loves his cat friend way too much

Saturday-morning cartoons taught us that dogs and cats are born to taunt and provoke each other, forever at odds. One Rottweiler, representing a strong and fiercely protective breed, intends on breaking that spell. 

He’s got his cat friend in an affectionate headlock, and like lovers on a raft fleeing a shipwreck, he will never let go. Even when the cat is clearly like, Dude, enough!

“Let me outta here.”

“Let me outta here.”

These two are in good company, judging from the thriving YouTube sub-sub-subgenre of Rottweiler-cat bromances. But none can match the affection of this particular pair.
