In this heartwarming video we meet a dog called Himalaya and a young boy called Hernan. Hernan has Down Syndrome, a genetic condition that many people struggle to understand even to this day. Himalaya doesn’t care about Hernan’s condition because he’s a dog. Dogs don’t judge people like humans do. All dogs want to do is please people and have fun with them. In the video, Hernan isn’t in the mood for play, but that doesn’t stop Himalaya from trying!
Himalaya’s a Labrador, a notoriously friendly breed of dog that loves the company of people – children in particular. As you’ll see in the video, Himalaya is rejected time and time again by Hernan, but still he persists … and it’s so adorable to watch.
No wonder this video’s been seen by millions of people online. Every kid should have a dog as loyal and eager to please as Himalaya. Little Hernan is a very lucky boy.
