Boy caught on video sneaking into neighbor’s garage to hug her dog [View all]

When a Louisiana woman placed a surveillance camera in her garage, she never expected to see this trespasser. The trespasser was not a criminal, but a little boy who had been running into her garage to hug her dog.

Dog owner Hollie Mallet took to Facebook in the hopes of identifying the boy.

“Attn Neighbors! Anyone know who this sweet little boy is?” she posted. “Every now and then when he rides his bike he will quickly come and love on my dog or play fetch real quick, but always leaves quick like he doesn’t know if he should be here! I’d like to tell him he’s welcome to stay and play, she loves the attention!”

After watching the video, Ginger Breaux recognized the boy as her son Josh and alerted Mallet. She explained that her son loves animals, especially dogs. The Daily Mail reports that the Breuax family’s dog Bella recently died.

Now, Mallet now invites Josh to frequently visit her dog Dutchess.

dogs can feel if a child needs to hug them, I think this one did. demigoddess Jun 2016 #30
