Mariana Shablom (@mari_hadalittlelamb) has made a really humorous dog catch with Catahoula and Pointer mix Dolly. In a now-viral TikTok video with 3.2 million clicks and over 520,000 likes, the dog mom shows how dog joke is expressed in dog Dolly, also known as Dolly Wolly:
The footage from a doorbell camera shows the funny behavior of Dolly the dog: While the pretty dog lady first tactfully rings the doorbell, she immediately tilts her head in astonishment - and barks excitedly in the face of the supposed visit. Owner Mariana writes: "Only my dog would ring the doorbell, look extremely confused and then bark because 'someone is at the door'😂." She refers to Dolly's dog collar to anticipate any criticism: "Please understand that the e-collar is only used for TRAINING purposes, Dolly is fine."
Breed Portrait: Louisiana Catahoula Leopard and Pointer Mix
The Catahoula Pointer mix is a mixed breed dog that is created during the mating of the Catahoula Leopard dog and the Pointer. Both dogs actually have a friendly disposition - nevertheless, the personalities differ greatly, so that no exact character can be traced.
The Catahoula Leopard dog is known to be energetic, curious, and intelligent. Pointers, on the other hand, are rather independent as hunting dogs, but still want to be at the side of their owners. They are considered to be extremely intelligent and easy to train.
Size & Weight: Catahoula Pointer Mix
Height: approx. 51-66 centimeters at the shoulder
Weight: approx. 16-37 kilograms
Life expectancy: about 10-14 years
The breed can be temperamental and inquisitive. Like all dogs, the Catahoula Pointer mix wants to get enough attention and should be well socialized. Although the mongrel can sometimes have a mind of its own, you should only rely on positive reinforcement in your upbringing.
Experts recommend taking the mongrel on long and extensive walks and hikes to keep the exceptionally high energy level as low as possible. Sufficient utilization keeps the Catahoula Pointer mix from its natural tendency to become destructive.
A Catahoula Leopard dog that has been mixed with the Pointer may be prone to hip dysplasia, deafness, and eye problems, among other things. The health problems mentioned are common in both breeds.

To a user's comment "This is the replacement doorbell," Mariana replies: "It's the main doorbell." Other users are also amused by Dolly's action. Some report on their own "dollys" or give the owner funny advice:
