Gentle Dog Befriends Boy with Down Syndrome (VIDEO)

This touching video captures a few beautiful minutes between a dog named Himalaya, and a little boy named Hernán (who has Down Syndrome). Hernán does not like to be touched (according to his mother Ana, who uploaded the video shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina), and he often shies away from contact. However, Himalaya was patient (and very gentle) and the video shows him trying again and again to push boundaries and connect with the boy.

Keep that box of tissues ready!
