The curious owner took to Reddit to ask for advice from other pet owners as they didn't know why he kept making the noise.

"Does anyone else’s golden make this ‘happy’ noise?" the owner, who posts under the username Same-Woodpecker-9377, asked.

People quickly took to the comments claiming their dog also makes a unique noise when they're happy — with some suggesting it is similar to a cat purring.

One user wrote: "Ours does and it is totally his love noise. We call it the Steve snort (you know, cuz his name is Steve)."

Another commented: "Dog purr, my golden does it too."

A third added: "My heart! So unbelievably cute."

"I need this to be an ASMR for my serotonin boost," a fourth said.

It comes after golden retriever fans were left gushing over one of their beloved dogs' reaction to first meeting some puppies for the first time.
