An adorable golden retriever has the best way to greet his owner every day – by leaping through the air into his arms.
Riley lives with his owner Nick Kime in Richmond, Virginia, US, and has become somewhat of a social media celebrity over the years thanks to his incredible party trick.
In a video posted to his dedicated Instagram account, @hdbrosriley, the pooch is seen repeatedly performing his best Dirty Dancing impression by doing a running jump into Nick’s arms.
One clip in the compilation video shows Riley running out of his home after seeing his owner arrive back from work.
He jumps down the steps and is lifted into the air with an overjoyed look on his face.
In another part of the video, Riley is seen donning some wings to make his leap of joy that bit more hilarious and he’s even seen wearing a superhero cape.
The video has been seen more than 37,000 times since it was shared on August 20 with the caption: “85lbs of flying fur coming atcha.”
And it’s fair to say the heartwarming video went down a treat with Riley’s 90,000 followers.
One wrote: “This is my favourite thing ever. He's so sweet.”
“Pure love and trust,” another commented. “Pup loving their human. Man I love dogs. Thank you for sharing this video!”
A third added: “He sure does love and puts all in faith in you! What a wonderful thing!”
Riley has more than 90,000 followers on Instagram and his bio sums him up perfectly. "Jumping straight into your hearts," it reads.
But the pooch is not the only golden retriever to have become internet famous recently.
Another goldie, Stanley, has racked up more than 1,000 followers thanks to his mohawk hairstyle which he has kept since he was a puppy.
And Bailey’s adorable relationship with a litter of bunnies also proved hugely popular online.
