It is not known on what basis dogs choose friends.
But if they fall in love with someone, then the strength of this feeling simply has no edges.
So, the friendly retriever Louboutin (for friends – just Loubie) does not skimp on tenderness, demonstrating love to almost every passerby.
According to her owner – Cesar Fernandez-Chavez, because of the loving nature of the pet, evening walks with Loubie last for hours.
Seeing a stranger, an affectionate dog rushes to him to hug – just like a person, wrapping his paws around a casual acquaintance.
Because of this surprising behavior, Loubie was given the nickname “the hugging dog” by the area’s residents.
Everything looks nice – so that the touched passers-by simply cannot refuse a friendly retriever. Even if they are in a hurry.
According to local residents, after cuddling with Loubie, they feel a little happier.
Many of those who know the dog specifically approach her to get their “dose of happiness” and relieve themselves of the burden of accumulated problems.
Louboutin is well known on Instagram. More than 190 thousand people have followed the page of the unusual dog. When several local publications wrote about the dog, Loubie began to be invited to various events and conferences dedicated to pets.
The Hugging Dog also tried her hand as a therapy dog, and her amazing qualities suited the job perfectly.
On International Doctor’s Day, Loubie walked around the local hospital to hug all the doctors and nurses and give them a few moments of happiness.
For many New Yorkers, she has even become a symbol of hope during difficult times when the coronavirus epidemic has broken out in the city.
