Check out this cute little puppy as he attempts to make contact with his reflection in the mirror. The cute little puppy notices his reflection in the mirror and immediately wants to play with it, thinking it's another dog! Fortunately, his reflection always plays back! Adorable!

Many people are puzzled by the fact that dogs seem to ignore images of themselves reflected in a mirror. Young puppies encountering mirrors for the first time may treat the image as if it is another dog. They may bark at it, or give a little bow and an invitation to play as if they are encountering a real dog and engaging in a social interaction. However, after a short while they lose interest.

This cute clip shows the moment a curious puppy comes face to face with himself after looking into a mirror for the first time and getting slightly confused. Is this puppy trying to make a new friend in the mirror? The video shows the dog staring at his reflection and letting little low cries before taking a step forward and touching the glass with his nose. He is totally confused that he even tries to sniff at the mirror. He then backs away because he obviously didn’t like the cold, hard touch and rather adorably starts moving his head sideways, entirely unsure for how to behave in the given situation.

The pooch then bravely takes another step forward and touches the mirror once again while letting short barks all along, communicating with his reflexion. It seems like this dog can’t come to terms with his reflection and looks around the room calmly while taking a quick break from playing with the new friend. Cuteness overload!

When your dog looks in the mirror, what does he see? A playmate, maybe. An adversary, sometimes. But could he possibly recognize himself? For that matter, does a dog have a sense of ‘self’? This adorable footage of a curious puppy staring himself in the mirror for the first time had us in stitches. His reaction is both hilarious and extremely cute!

The mirror is a funny thing. Until you are old enough to understand the simple physics behind the plate of glass coated in a thin layer of metal able to reflect light back to you, looking in a mirror is like looking into a parallel universe. We use it to make ourselves presentable when we go out in public. The little ones use it to have some innocent fun and we love to watch them at it!

Kids aren’t the only ones who love watching themselves in the mirror - puppies do it too! Watch as this curious little pooch tries to befriend his reflection in the mirror! Most likely, this was his natural reaction to seeing ‘something’ in the mirror. He tried to outsmart the other puppy in the mirror but became perplexed when the mirror-puppy mimicked his every move.
