Malta’s beloved Tina, the Jack Russell that loves to dive in St Peter’s Pool in Marsaxlokk, has gone viral on TikTok.

Just a few weeks ago, in a video shared by an account on TikTok, Tina and her owner Carmelo were spotted taking a dip in the sea while enjoying the sunshine. 

Garnering 5.3 million views, the video has gained widespread traction grabbing the attention of people from all over the world.

Tina is not the first furry companion to accompany Carmelo at St Peter’s Pool.

For many years, Carmelo was accompanied by his late dog Titti, who also grabbed the attention of many for her love of diving.
