As This Rescue Dog Protectively Cuddles His Ill Human Friend He’s Making The Best Case Possible For Adopting His Kind…

This incredible video has captured the touching moment Toby the rescue dog protectively cuddles up to his sick best human friend Carter as the two lie on the sofa watching cartoons.

When Devin Crouch, Carter’s mother, walks in the room to film the heartwarming scene, Toby’s paw is seen wrapped around the poorly toddler in an obvious display of affection.

As the lyrics to a song in the cartoon aptly ring out — “friends help each other, yes they do” — it seems that loving dog Toby has been taking notes.

Since Mrs. Crouch, from Indiana, published the moving clip on YouTube, it has been seen almost 100,000 times. Underneath her video she writes:

Mom walked in the room and saw Toby the rescue and Carter the toddler cuddling. It’s a heartwarming moment!

Mrs. Crouch and her partner Jake adopted Toby after his previous owner abandoned him outside a local bank. The couple soon had a baby, Carter, and he and Toby became inseparable.

Mrs. Crouch documents Toby and Carter’s close bond in a series of blog posts, which see the pair asleep in bed together, playing in the garden and even in the bath.
