The Facebook video, posted by Magen Peigelbeck, shows the dolphin as it slowly approaches the boat nestled near the Isle of Hope Marina near Savannah on Saturday, according to WSAV.
The dolphin, periodically popping its head above the water, appeared to be responding to the dogs — named Stanley and Miles — as they barked.
The dolphin then proceeds to follow alongside the boat, prompting the pups to continue barking. At one point, one of the curious dogs even leaned its head slightly over the edge as the dolphin got within a few inches of the boat.
Peigelbeck told WSAV that the dolphin kept the pups company all morning.
The video has since garnered over 2.7 million views, with many admitting they have watched the 20-second clip numerous times.
“It makes me grin and my heart get big,” Peigelbeck told the outlet. “Everyone can get along. We can learn lessons from animals.”
