A little boy named Hernán takes his time getting acquainted with the world’s gentlest dog. Hernán has Down Syndrome and is usually very shy when it comes to physical contact. When he met a dog named Himalaya, he acted no different. He was hesitant to play with her, but Himalaya did not give up. She was very patient, and consistently tried to get Hernán’s attention. After a few minutes, Hernán warmed up and gave her a big hug!
