Boy With Down Syndrome Gets Approached By Dog



t is our nature as human beings to be ignorant and selfish. But thank God he created dogs. These remarkable creatures are simply kind, gentle and always selfless.

You won’t find a better proof of that than the charming clips below!

Herman, a 5-year-old boy from Buenos Aires, Argentina, has Down syndrome and has always avoided physical contact with others. Even other children ignore him. But luckily this adorable boy found a much better dog, Himalaya. She is a sweet labrador retriever. The two have formed an incredible bond.

In an emotional and very intense shot, the dog gently approaches the child. Himalaya acts as if she knows that the child has special needs and requires special attention. Even those who are shy about physical interaction cannot resist the affection and unconditional love of a dog. When the puppy approached Hernan, the boy reacted in a very cute way. Fortunately, his mom captured this touching scene on camera.

,,Hernan is a bit withdrawn and afraid of physical contact.” says the boy’s mother, Ana, while describing the video. He doesn’t like to be touched, but Himalaya was so patient and gentle that it’s touching that he allows himself to be touched. It’s amazing how the simplest gesture can be so effective. Man’s best friend teaches us what loyalty, friendship and love really mean!
