Owner shares moments dog squashes nose onto objects

One daft dog loves nothing more than squashing its nose against surfaces to get attention.

The owners of naughty pup Leo spent hundreds on vets bills to make sure his habit wasn’t a symptom of brain damage.

But the two-year-old pooch was merely diagnosed as being a “silly and healthy goofball”.

Leo’s owner Christine Holierhoek, 27, said: “My boyfriend and I just couldn’t stop laughing when we saw him do it.

“I think he just loves the attention.”

Christine, from Bodegraven in the Netherlands, got Leo from a farm when he was a tiny puppy, and immediately fell in love.

She said: “I was at a very low point in my life and I thought that a dog would force me to go outside again.

“I look inside the barn and I just saw two blue eyes looking at me and he immediately ran towards me and jumped up.

“Leo was the first puppy that jumped up to me and I just knew that I had to take him home.

“My boyfriend didn’t know, so I had some explaining to do when I got home!







Christine said she knew straight away that Leo was the dog for her

“His personality was, and still is, super sweet, not afraid of anything, confident and goofy.

While trying to crate-train their new pet, Christine and boyfriend Remi, 32, noticed him fall asleep with his nose pressed against the bars.

After that, Leo learned to squash his snout upon things that he wants; the door to signal he wants to go outside, or the sofa when he wants to have a nap.

Nursing student Christine said: “After reading some articles about it I got worried because it is also a sign of bad health so we took a visit to the vet.

“A couple hundred euros later the vet told us that we just have a silly and healthy goofball that just likes to press his nose against things.

“He is as healthy as a horse.”

Christine started a TikTok featuring Leo and her two Bengal cats, two-year-old Mowgli and three-year-old Bagheera, in 2020.

Their account, @bengalsmowglibagheera , now has over 275,000 followers.

She said: “I found out that lots of people really liked Leo, also because of his enchanting eyes.

“But then after posting videos of Leo pressing his nose against things my TikTok account started growing, Leo has a lot of fans now!

“I just want lots of people to enjoy Leo’s goofiness, I get told a lot of time in the comments under my videos that Leo has brightened their day and put a smile on their face.

“That really makes my day to hear that Leo has the ability to do that.

“Now when I see him do it I’m quickly looking for my phone so I can record it!”
