Another user said, "why would anyone put a fish-bowl on the floor? how often has this been "practiced" for the dog to learn this? and most important: why is a "human" filming this instead putting the suffocating fish back into the water? cruelty for clicks...i don't like it! 👎 [sic]"
"How cute! Filming a fish suffocating on the ground just to make a viral video of the (obviously) trained dog saving it. Awesome! And it was definitely for the video because in what other scenario would 2 goldfish be on a small bowl ON THE FLOOR next to a cat?? [sic]" another person added.
