Yellow Lab works to befriend a child with Downs Syndrome


Grab a tissue… You are SO Beautiful!

According to the editor of this sweet film Jim Stenson…

Life is full of special moments, open your eyes, open your mind and most of all, open your heart, you will see. I found this video online, I did not film it but I thought it was so special I had to put a song behind it. To me, the female Lab is trying so hard to befriend the child, I believe this is the first time they met, I DONT KNOW. The boy is cautious but curious at the same time.

The young boy’s name is Hernan and Ana his mother contact Jim to tell the story of her original video below and set it to “You Are so Beautiful.”

The sweet Yellow Lab’s name is Himalaya. I believe that dogs have much better senses than people do when it comes to reading people. This sweet pooch obviously knew that she had to be very gentle and patient with this special little boy.

When Himalaya puts her paws on Hernana’s shoulder… well I guarantee you better get the tissues before you start watching this. I don’t think this dog is a professionally trained service dog you but you can see she has it down naturally.

This is the full length version of the video called “Haciendose amigos!” which translates to by becoming friends! You can see how hard this Labrador Retriever is trying to make friends…

The Denver Dog tweeted out this video and it’s so precious and shows how patient and kind dogs can be I just had to share it. Please share this sweet duo with your dog loving friends.
