Like so many big breeds with a history of military or police service, Rottweilers have gotten some bad press over the years. But thanks to Harley and her owner, this viral dog is breaking the stigma one hilarious post at a time. This young purebred rotti, who is on her way to turning two years old, has stolen the hearts of many dog lovers on Instagram thanks to her hilarious content. Her owner frequently posts "expectation versus reality" videos, which highlight just how incorrect the Rottweiler reputation can be and how silly these dogs are at heart.

One of the fan-favorite clips shows Harley's "killer instincts" as she licks a stranger upon meeting her, while opting to bark relentlessly at a leaf blowing in the wind instead. "Guard dog mission successful," the caption read for the video. "No leaf shall enter our property. Who else has a dog that guards them from the most ridiculous things?" The post raked in over 780 thousand Likes from fans from all over the world. "These babies have the biggest heart!" one user wrote in the comments.
