Dogs always seem to have a loving, calming effect on humans. That's why dogs are used for therapy during disasters, for medical reasons, and more. Sometimes, they don't even have to be trained to be gentle and have a calming effect on people.

I've always had a heart for special needs children. I grew up around them as m step mom was a special needs teacher. It seems that kids with special needs and down syndrome are some of the happiest kids in the world. To them, what they go through is normal, it's their life. But even though they may get down sometimes, it isn't something a cute dog can't fix.

This video came across my Facebook yesterday and it completely melted my heart. Don't be surprised if it melts yours too.
