Little Boy Caught Sneaking Into Neighbour's House To Hug Dog

It's hard to resist a hug from a happy dog - and this nine-year-old couldn't bear it!

Footage of a little boy sneaking into a woman's home to play with her dog has captured hearts all over the world.

Hollie Mallet posted security footage from her home on social media recently, asking people to help her find the boy who would frequently stop by just to say hi to her dog, Duchess, but then quickly run away.

"Attn Neighbors! Anyone know who this sweet little boy is?" Hollie wrote on Facebook.

"Every now and then when he rides his bike he will quickly come and love on my dog or play fetch real quick, but always leaves quick like he doesn't know if he should be here! I'd like to tell him he's welcome to stay and play, she loves the attention!"

Fortunately, the Internet came through and identified the boy as Hollie's neighbour, Josh Breaux.

Josh's mum, Ginger, wrote on the post saying: "Josh talks about your dog all the time! Every time we pass he looks to see if she was sitting where he could see her."

Sadly, Josh had a dog of his own but it passed away last year, and his family aren't ready for a new one.

Hollie, however, told ABC World News Tonight  Josh could come over and play with her dogs any time.
