The little dog featured here is name Tommy, and as we see, Tommy has a genuine fear of being in a car while his owner is driving. It’s all too obvious that Tommy is afraid the moment he is placed in the car.
So what does Tommy do in order to get over his fear? He actually reaches out to his owner with his paw to hold onto his hand.
This is a reaction most human beings have when they are afraid. We tend to reach out for someone we trust to take care of us, or we tend to cling onto something.
Fortunately for this little dog, his dad, Adam, doesn’t mind holding his paw, but the poor little guy thinks he needs Adam’s hand more. How kind of Adam to realize that his sweet pooch is scared and needs to be comforted.
Maybe in time, Tommy will get over his phobia of driving around in the car, but in the meantime, he has his dad there to take care of him. So, if you want to watch poor little Tommy face his fears, the only way he knows how, watch the video below.
