The dog paused for a moment before approaching the man and embracing him. They both snuggled for a long time, perhaps because they both needed the love.

One person wrote, "We don't deserve dogs", while another said, “Actually…I think this is something that needs to be seen for two reasons. First and foremost, an example that homeless are still people in need of love and affection. Secondly…to show animals are awesome and love unconditionally.” “Speaking from experience, there are very few things in life better than an animal offering compassion and love in their hugs. Their love is pure and selfless and we are all the better for experiencing it” another person added. “When the dog is kinder then his fellow man, this is why I love dogs. They have no pretense, they are just genuine creatures of nature; who feel and love, just like you and I do” yet another Twitter user remarked. 



 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

Many users commented on how they can relate the dog of the video with their own, just like one person wrote, “The pup SAW him. Just like my dog does every time we pass someone who is homeless. Don’t look away, SEE them. Say good morning. It’s so simple to treat someone who is down like a human. Pls, do it.” “I use to walk my dogs through a section of the park most people avoided due to the homeless. I always stopped and let them pat and play with my dogs. They were always so thankful.” another person added. "I wish I was that dog. I wish I could bring that much unconditional love with just a hug. Many yrs ago, when I was more able, my hubby & I always had someone living with us. From a few nights to months. We had a pregnant 15 yo, ex cons, relatives, anyone who needed a bed & a hug." another commented.
