Boy caught on video sneaking into neighbor’s garage to hug her dog











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.

23. I'm sure he's been told not to go in other people's houses

without permission, so of course he thought he was doing wrong. Well, now he has permission.

13. Here's hoping that the Breauxes will be able to replace Bella soon.

Perhaps a local animal shelter can step in to help.

Every dog should have a little boy or girl of their own.

16. Uplifting story. Thank you for posting.

Brings back some memories. When I was a little boy, there was a big (almost giant) black lab that lived some distance down the street from me. I was always out on my bike doing something - and one day when he was standing there, wagging his tail and looking longingly at the tennis ball in the grass, I decided to stop and play with him a bit. It began something of a friendship between Cob (that was his name) and I that lasted for several years. Occasionally Cob's humans would come outside, or stop and watch - and other neighborhood kids eventually came to see him, too.

Not sure what made me decide to play with him that day, since he was big - and I was always kind of scared of big dogs back then. Maybe he just looked lonely. Or bored. Maybe it was that giant wagging tail, or the fact that he didn't rip my face off (which, in retrospect, could have happened) when I stopped to play with him.

This kid took it a step further in sneaking into a garage - but I'll bet you it was the dog's fault for staring at him with those big eyes and wagging it's tail. I wish there were more stories like this.

24. It's a Hugging rather than a mugging.

We really need to have more of these.

What a great kid.

25. I thought dogs didn't like hugs?

Any dog owners familiar with this? They like being pet but not hugged because it is restraining and makes them feel intimidated?

Anyway, I'm glad this boy did not get shot for trespassing. It's a cute story. And hopefully he'll get longer play sessions with the owners permission and not have to hide it.

28. It depends on the dog.

Some dogs don't like hugging, because it restrains them in a way no other dog or pack member could do, but some dogs don't mind it, and some actually like it. I currently have a basset hound who not only likes hugs from me, but who will actually seek me out in order to get hugs. My previous basset hound, on the other hand, didn't care for hugs, and would squirm and struggle when I tried to hug him.

Dogs are very much individuals, just like people, and often have different likes and dislikes.

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

a friends dog sat still for my daughter to pet her even though sitting still for that long was painful for the dog. But my daughter is retarded and that dog and our cats instinctively knew that and were extra patient with her. She loves dogs and cats as a result.

37. i had a doberman that hugged back . i'm guessing in this case the boy and that particular dog

were ok. the boy would probably have known if the dog was not into it and not tried much more . but in this case they did get along .

42. Pic of Josh with his Dog Bella

Bella had been with him since he was 2 . and he lost her last year. affection from a dog(and i assume other animals) could do so much for one's life.
