Although this video has been out for quite some time, only now has the Internet started reacting to the essence of true friendship that lies behind it. Himalaya, the sweetest dog on Earth, is shown here interacting with a young boy who has down syndrome. According to the boys mother, Ana, Hernán does not like to be touched. Children with down syndrome often have an aversion to physical contact, however that did not stop Himalaya from trying.

Time and time again Himalaya tries to connect with Hernán. Eventually, his efforts pay off in this video.
