This is an uncommon dog with a so warm heart, called Himalayan. She is trying so hard to befriend the child who has Down Syndrome.
Little boy’s mom Ana, who filmed the video, said her son Hernan is a bit withdrawn and flees from physical contact, what's caused by DS disease. This mom and her son are from Buenos Aires.
“Hernan does not like to be touched, but Himalayan (the dog) insisted so patiently, and she was so soft that's why it is so moving, she is left to do anything. I do not think that Dios commit errors, (God doesn't make mistakes) everything happens for a reason," Ana said.
Watch when the dog puts her paw on the boys shoulder as if to say, “I love you, everything will be ok.”
The boy is cautious but curious at the same time. Because of Himalaya’s persistence and gentleness, Hernán ends up giving her what looks like a hug.
Jim Stenson, who thought this video was so special, put a song behind it and added some captions in it. This version on YouTube has been viewed more than ten million times.
He explained that the text in the video was inspired by a beautiful little DS girl he met, which said “God didn’t make a mistake when He made me” and her daddy said she was a “Gift from God”.
