It was made by Dave Meinert, 34, a film-maker from South Africa, and it stars Pegasus.

He told BuzzFeed: "Most of her siblings died or were deformed. I’ll never know what was wrong."

He says: "I’d had a Great Dane in the family and was in love with the breed."

Since making the video, Meinert says Pegasus is "OK", but "she gets sick often – she’s just like the sickly kid in class always coughing, sneezing, allergic to this and that."

He told BuzzFeed: "I wanted to make something that wasn’t in your face, ‘hey you must adopt’ or ‘hey do this or that’".
