Cute might not be the first word that comes to mind to describe a rhinoceros, but we think this baby rhino who loves to get brushed is just adorable! A sweet TikTok video shows how the little animal stands perfectly still while a human caretaker brushes him. He especially seemed to like getting scratches under the chin, just like a dog! In fact, one commenter noted that this baby rhino was acting a lot like a cuddly pet.

“Even armoured puppies love a good scratch!” they wrote, referring to the animal’s tough skin.

At one hilarious moment in the video, the baby rhino sat like a good boy while getting brushed. He was definitely enjoying the care being lavished on him!

“That rhino appreciates brushing more than my dogs,” another commenter added.

When it comes to animal classification, some people only have one rule. If they’re cute and they seem friendly, then they’re a puppy! This definitely applies to the sweet baby rhino who just loves getting chin scratches with a brush.
