When dog owners are expecting children, there is almost always someone who wonders if the baby should be near the dog. Those who love their dogs would like to believe that they could never harm a child, but those around them are rarely convinced.
The parents of one-year-old Finn were so sure that their two-year-old Boxer would never hurt the boy, they let them sleep together in the nursery.
Like many other parents of young children, they had a camera installed in the baby’s room, so they could take a quick look whenever they were in another room.
The camera records the moment the baby gets out of bed.
What the camera captured when little Finn was about to fall asleep has been viewed over two million times on YouTube. What’s the reason? It melts the hearts of those who see it.
When one-year-old Finn was apparently having trouble falling asleep, he slipped out of his bed and lay down in the dog basket below.
Wanted to sleep in the dog bed
The dog, named Brutus, barely reacted when the little one joined him. Even when the little one climbed on his back, lay on his belly or snuggled up against his legs in every direction, Brutus didn’t mind.
On camera, you can see that it takes a long time for Finn to calm down, while Brutus remains calm until the little boy is settled and safe.
Feel free to share if you want to show skeptics that many dogs can be trusted.
