Watch Its Gentle Gestures As Labrador Befriends Young Boy With Down Syndrome

Dogs have an innate sense for caring. They sense our happiness, our sadness, the moments when we need their companionship. Himalaya, a Labrador from Buenos Aires, does just that. Watch as he befriends young Hernan, a toddler with Down syndrome.

Children with Down syndrome typically avoid contact and Hernan initially resists Himalaya’s overtures. Gradually, he warms up to the loving Labrador. It’s quite heartwarming the caring nature of this dog.
