It was at this point that a lively little dog made it clear that no one was taking his favorite food away from him.
Pino, a cute cross between Pekingese and Chihuahua, began to growl as a hand approached the yogurt pot she was squeezing in a comedic sequence shot by her owner Hikaru Tanaka in Tokyo.
As the fingers moved closer to the snack, the three-year-old dog started baring his teeth before suddenly throwing himself forward to try and bite his hand.

Pino then covered the tiny tub with his body protectively in the entertaining footage.
The video, posted on TikTok by @ piiinostagram.tktk – a page created for Pino, has been viewed over 4.8 million times.
And it turns out that Pino actually stole the yogurt from its owner.
The caption for the clip, filmed on November 19, reads: “Pino still steals the owner’s meal.”

Jemica Bond added: “He loves” you bring that crispy finger in here, I’m gonna bite it! “‘
“Don’t get it wet or feed it after midnight,” said another commentator, referring to the 1980s hit movie Gremlins, in which adorable fluffy Mogwais are turned into devastating monsters.

And this isn’t the first time Pino has claimed a snack.
Photos and videos of the territorial dog on social media often show her resting her head protectively on a box of pretzels, a serving of sushi and other snacks as she watches warily at the wandering hands.
Pino has over 14,000 followers on Instagram where her owner also posts clips of her playing, most recently of her enjoying the winter in party gear.
The dog, which also offers a line of merchandise, even made a cameo appearance on Japanese national television in a segment about pets on December 23.
