Family Dog Gives Heartwarming Human Hugs to Boy

Family dog gives heartwarming hug to his human buddy!

If someone were to ask you what comes to mind when you think of a family dog, a few common breeds will come to mind. A Golden Retriever is likely to be at the top of the list. They are incredible family dogs and are known for their loving personalities. That big personality is clearly demonstrated when a boy and his Retriever show everyone how a proper hug between a human boy and his fur family member should be!

TikTok user charliedelta1991 often posts moments from her family, and a recent clip she posted went viral proving once again how nurturing Golden Retrievers are. They’re so popular, there are many Retriever mixes, and even more memes about the friendly family dogs!

“He Always Hugs Back”

In the heartwarming video by charliedelta1991, a little boy is sitting in the living room with his Golden Retriever. He wraps his arms gently around the dog. Once he finishes hugging him, he pulls away while the dog reciprocates the gesture. It wraps its front legs around him from behind, giving him the furriest of embraces.
