Dog Befriends Boy With Down Syndrome, Gently Refuses to NOT Play

by at . Comments

Sometimes, a video will melt your heart. This one certainly fits the bill.

A dog named Himalaya just plain refused to give up on a toddler who doesn't want to play. Gently, but persistently, the canine urged the little guy to have fun!

Hernan, from Buenos Aires, has Down Syndrome, which, according to comments posted by his mom Ana, causes him to shy away from physical contact.
