The video has garnered over 20.7 million views! In another video, Nick shares more about his dog, describing her as “50% malinois, 25% Staffie, and then equal parts malamute, St. Bernard, and border collie.” He also mentions that she can only tolerate a five-minute walk before her paws get too cold.

Many TikTok users suggested getting a jacket and boots for the dog, to which Nick responded, “For people commenting about her needing a coat or booties, trust me, she’s fine. When it’s THAT cold, we go out for only a few minutes.”

Alberta, Canada, has been experiencing record-breaking cold temperatures lately. The city of Edmonton hasn’t seen an overnight low of -40 C since 1972, according to the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC). This extreme weather has put a strain on Alberta’s infrastructure, with increased demand for electricity and roadside assistance.


The rescue dog’s reaction to the freezing weather has brought laughter to millions of viewers. Comments on the video include, “Nevermind, I’ll hold it, rofl,” “It’s like opening the freezer door,” and “My cat went outside and immediately threw up.”
