Video of Ocasio-Cortez being lovingly attacked by a dog goes viral after #NationalLoveYourPetDay

A resurfaced video of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) made the rounds on social media following National Love Your Pet Day.

In a short clip, the then-congressional candidate is seen being playfully tackled by a dog on the street while sitting down on a phone call last summer.

Ocasio-Cortez could then be seen laughing while still on the phone as the dog attempts to lick her face.

One tweet featuring the video has gone on to garner more than 300,000 views in the several hours since it was uploaded on Thursday afternoon.

So far, the video received overwhelmingly positive reactions from many on social media.

The video's reemergence also coincides with National Love Your Pet Day, which came on Wednesday.
