Boy With Down Syndrome Has No Friends. The Dog’s Reaction Brought Me To Tears.

This video features a lovable 3-year-old boy with Down syndrome who as reported by Faithtap had trouble making friends and was rather lonely. His gentle labrador certainly stole my heart. The dog seems to sense that the boy has particular needs, and treats him with utmost kindness and a compassion that is just adorable. It’s funny how the simplest of videos can have such far-reaching appeal. Despite its simplicity, this video has had 5 million YouTube views. Nice to see I’m not the only one who loved it.

Loyalty. Friendship. Love.

The touching friendship between this boy and his dog really got to me. I was reaching for kleenex by the time it was over.

Please share this beautiful video with others you think may enjoy it.
