Here is a short heartwarming video showing how a dog interacted with the little boy with such tenderness. This will melt even the toughest heart.
Their friendship began with the first act of the young boy called Hernán, reaching out to the dog. The dog, a gentle labrador retriever namedHimalaya, responded gently and lovingly. The young boy wiggles closer to the dog, almost as though to see what she is. She took that as an invitation, but Hernán became shy, nervous, and wiggled away, so Himalya proceeded to gently follow and insist she was his friend.
Hernán’s mom, Ana, has commented that because of his Down’s Syndrome, her son usually shies away from physical contact. But Himalaya lays down sweetly in front of the boy several times almost to introduce herself and have the boy get familiar with her, as if to say, “I am your friend and will always be here for you”.
Despite the boy being somewhat hesitant at first, the dog is persistent with his affection towards him, sensing that the young boy needed protecting. The dog knows exactly what she’s doing. Dogs are a LOT more in tune with kids that communicate differently.
The dog simply showed endless love and patience to a child who just takes longer to warm up to then a most children usually would. The dog who waited and repeated his actions of love. Eventually the child ends up showing love in return.
Dogs have such an innate ability to recognize those who need them, maybe some more than others. This is a great example of the gentle, compassionate kindness of an animal and demonstrates how nature cares for humans and for itself.
Watch them interact…this is so awesome and totally heartwarming.
