A dog dressed as a giant Christmas present has been spreading some much-needed seasonal cheer on social media.

Brandon Bennett regularly posts videos on TikTok of his German Shepherd, Storm, dressed up in any number of weird and wonderful outfits.

Storm's attire tends to reflect the time of year, with previous clips capturing the canine dressed up for everything from Halloween to Easter.

So with Christmas less than a month away, Bennett decided it was time to get Storm into the spirit of things with a bit of festive-themed fancy dress.

The past few weeks have seen Storm debut any number of Christmas-inspired get-ups, yet it was one particular clip of the canine dressed up inside a giant gift box that has been giving viewers all the feels.

In the video, Storm can be seen wearing a large cardboard box, covered in sparkly blue Santa-themed gift wrapping and topped off with a bow which has been placed atop the dog's furry head. Watch it here.

The footage, which has been watched more than 3 million times on social media, serves as a reminder of the way many dog owners are increasingly eager to include their four-legged companions in the annual festivities.

According to the 2021-2022 American Pet Products Association National Pet Owners Survey, Christmas is the most common occasion for dog owners to buy pet gifts, with 45 percent purchasing gifts for their canines during the holidays.

Storm certainly appears to be in the mood to celebrate if the video shared online is anything to go by and he's definitely not alone in that respect.

Fans have been flooding the comments section accompanying the clip with messages of support for the German Shepherd's striking new look.

Jenny Gaines commented: "I say that is the best Christmas present ever," with Lovedog declaring Storm to be "the best gift." Danielle10077 said: "awe the happiness in his face" while madisonmagee321 was similarly appreciative of the video, writing: "I needed this."

Elsewhere m.ads02 responded: "i want... to hug" with _0fficial_cj also full of appreciation for the clip and Storm's new "Christmas puppy" persona. The clip is one of a handful of videos featuring Storm in seasonal attire that have racked up millions of views on TikTok.

Another clip of the canine dressed up as a Christmas gift has been viewed over 5 million times.

Storm has also been dressed up as a Christmas tree of sorts in a choice of outfit that has proven similarly popular with the resulting video watched more than 5 million times.

More recently still, the German Shepherd has been busy melting hearts after being transformed into a reindeer of sorts by their owner who is evidently counting down the days until December 25.

Newsweek has contacted Bennett for comment.
