Dog Approaches Boy With Down Syndrome

It is in our nature as human beings to be ignorant and selfish. But thank God he made dogs. These incredible creatures are nothing but kind, gentle and always selfless. And you won’t find a better proof of it than this adorable footage, bellow!

Herman – a 5-year-old boy from Buenos Aires, Argentina, has Down Syndrome and he always avoided physical interaction with other people. More than that, kids of his are ignoring him, too. But, fortunately, the sweet little boy found someone way better – Himalaya, a gentle Labrador Retriever and the two formed an incredible bond.

In an emotional and very intense footage the dog approaches the boy carefully. Himalaya acts as she knows the little one has particular needs and requires special attention. Even a person who’s so shy when comes to physical interaction couldn’t resist a dog’s tenderness and unconditional love. So when the pup approaches Hernan, the boy responded in the most adorable way. Thankfully, his mom caught the moving scene on camera.

“Hernan is a bit withdrawn and flees from physical contact,” the boy’s mom, Ana described the video. “He does not like be touched, but Himalaya [the dog] insisted so patiently, and she was so soft that’s why it is so moving, she is left to do anything.” It’s incredible how the simplest gesture can have such a huge impact. The man’s best friend teach us what loyalty, friendship and love really means!
