There are some people who consider winter to be the best season. They usually love the outdoor adventures, the beautiful snow, and don’t mind being cold. But not everyone feels that way. 

On January 16, 2024, TikTok user Gisell Guzman (@gisellguzmanx) shared a video of a foster dog she is caring for after having a funny reaction to the snow. Take a look!

Not All Dogs Love the Cold Snow

The video starts with a gorgeous Toller dog who is wearing a sweaterand is out for a walk with his caregiver. It looks like it’s evening, and there is a very small amount of snow falling from the sky. 

“Do you like the snow,” Gisell asked the Toller who was doing gentle whimpers and seemed upset with the falling snow. 

“Do you like the snow,” she asked again. 

This time, he answered with a louder whimper and shook his head as if he were saying “no.”

“No,” she asked him as reassurance. 

More context is given in the text written on the video. Turns out this sweet dog isn’t used to cold weather. 

“My foster dog, who’s from Georgia, is experiencing snow for the first time in NYC,” the text reads. 

“It’s the way he shakes his head ‘No’ for me,” the video’s caption reads. 

In the comments, people laughed at this sweet dog’s hate for the snow. 

“He really said “I don’t like it,” one person wrote. 

“He shook his head no,” another wrote. “I love him, omg.”

“He said girl, let’s go,” someone else joked. 

It’s Important to Dress Dogs for the Weather

According to the American Kennel Club, some dogs should wear coats when out in the cold. 

“As a general rule of thumb, large dogs with thick, dense coats are well protected from the cold,” they share. “But there are dogs that need to be protected from extreme weather.”

Dogs that would likely do best with cold weather wear like a coat, and boots would be small, toy dogs, dogs that sit low to the ground, dogs who have had their typically long hair cut short, dogs with lean bodies and short hair, and older dogs. 

“Once you’ve determined that your dog needs a winter coat, look for a coat that protects their neck and belly,” the organization shares. “It should extend from the base of the neck to the tail, without being so long that it would make pit stops to pee problematic.”

Hopefully, this sweet foster dog will grow to love the pretty snow.
