You don’t have to be too big, to be a hero, and this kind-hearted boy recently proved it in the most heartwarming footage you’ve seen this year. The kid was heading to the school when he spotted two stray dogs on the side of the road. But instead of ignoring them, the little one stopped to make their day better!

The school boy was on his way to the school, when he came across a pair of homeless dogs along his way. A very kind soul with everyone he meets, Ibrahim couldn’t ignore the two innocent souls, so he decided to make their day by giving them the sweetest embrace.

Of course, the boy acted instinctively, but someone noticed the adorable moment, and thankfully, caught it on camera. In a short, yet viral footage, the boy can be seen hugging the two dogs with so much compassion and love. At some point, he leaves them, but he soon realizes one of dog still needs some cuddles, so Ibrahim comes and hugs it one more time.
