Tiny human hearts and cute, furry paws have this incredible power to create a precious bond that lasts a lifetime.
Picture this heartwarming scene – a little boy tenderly tucking in his furry friend for the night with the sweetness only a child can muster.
The adorable moment not only showcases the innocence of childhood, but also honors the magic and importance of these precious relationships in shaping the emotional health of a little one.
Natalie Lueders absolutely adores her Pit Bull, Roxy. However, due to important work commitments, she frequently has to be away from her cherished furry friend.
Don’t worry – Roxy is never left by herself.
On the contrary, whenever Natalie is away, Roxy is left in excellent care with her best friend, Daniela Reinhard, and her family. They’re always more than willing to take care of Roxy whenever it’s necessary.
“Roxy spends a good amount of time with them. Daniela’s daughter and Roxy are connected at the soul. They love each other so much,” Natalie told Newsweek.
While Daniela’s daughter and Roxy have always had an incredible relationship, Arlo, the youngest son, has never paid that much attention to the furry companion that often visits.
According to the sources, he is typically engrossed in playing with his toys most of the time.
However, this changed recently.
While Natalie was once again on a business trip out of town, her friend, Daniela, sent her a heartwarming video captured by a pet cam in the house, and it absolutely melted Natalie’s heart.
In the video, Arlo climbs into bed with Roxy and then proceeds to tuck her in with not one, but two blankets before snuggling down to sleep next to her.
“My heart filled with warmth when I saw the video, as I do every time she sends me updates. It makes it easier for me when I have to be away for work,” Natalie said.
“All The Feels”
Overwhelmed with emotion after viewing the footage, Natalie felt compelled to share the remarkable bond between Roxy and Arlo with the world.
She shared the clip on her TikTok account with the caption: “Seriously, this child! Just love him so much. All the feels.”
The video understandably went viral, with people applauding both the dog for being so calm and the child for his selfless act.
“Awwe, the fact that he didn’t want to pull the covers all the way up to cover himself, so selfless and loving!,” one TikTok user wrote. The other person commented, “This right here is the reality of having a pit bull. They are loving and caring. It’s bad owners, not bad dogs.”
The latter comment struck a chord with Natalie because she, too, shares the belief that Pit Bulls are indeed one of the best breeds ever.
“I’ve owned many different dog breeds, but Roxy, my pit bull, is by far the best dog, companion, and friend that I have ever had. Dogs are like kids… if you bring them up with love, they will love. If you show them aggression, that’s what they will think is normal. We should punish the dog owners and not the dog,” Natalie told Newsweek.
This video has not only warmed many hearts, but also highlighted the often underestimated bond these dogs share with their family, proving once again that love knows no boundaries.
