Like lots of dogs, this wild fawn can't get enough belly rubs.

According to the Daily Mail, Anthony Dean, a tree expert from Louisa, Ky., saw the tiny fawn on one of his job sites and picked the animal up to move it away from harm.

Once he gave the deer a friendly pet, the deer became attached to Dean and refused to be put down. Every time Dean tried to put the fawn on the ground, the deer would whine. But as soon as he cradled the animal back in his arms, the deer became entranced.

Eventually, the fawn returned to its mother who watched nearby, according to theDaily Mail.

As of Monday morning, the viral video was seen more than 3.75 million times.
