Rottweilers have gotten a bad reputation over the years, but one fierce-looking member of the breed was not match for a baby who ended up having the last laugh.
A heart-warming video posted on YouTube shows a little boy named Dylan, who was six months old at the time, having a laugh attack when confronted by the family dog, a large Rottweiler named Brodie.
In the 48-second video uploaded by Dylan’s mother, the pooch towering over the baby lying on the floor begins licking his little hand, sending Dylan into a laugh fit.

The little boy with dinosaurs on his shirt bravely pets the dog's muzzle and sputters with giggles as the pooch continues slobbering over his hands.
Dylan squeals with delight, grabbing the canine's head and ears as Brodie licks his chops and playfully nudges his tiny playmate, careful not to harm him in any way.
‘You can't help but laugh along with him when you watch this video,’ the boy’s mother wrote in the description of the video.
Since being first posted online, the adorable clip has drawn nearly 3.7 million views.
While some commenters reacted positively to the sweet interaction between the pup and child, many expressed horror that the parents allowed a Rottweiler near a baby.
