For dog lovers, every dog deserves to be loved – regardless of whether that dog is your pet or someone else’s fur baby. Yes, there are times when dog lovers would even play around with dogs that they randomly cross paths with at the park or in the streets. Of course, it’s always important to ask dog owners first if you can touch their pets. Either way, no one can deny that there’s something about dogs that are too irresistible not to even say hi. Maybe it comes with the fact that dogs can be really sweet especially if you have built a connection with your pet.
Sadly, not all dogs have homes – and a lot of them are not under the direct care of anyone or are not prevented from roaming around. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a global stray dog population of over 200 million worldwide.
For dog lovers, it can be painful. That’s why most people are encouraged to adopt and not shop as there are many dogs out there waiting to find their forever home. While not all of them can have homes, there are still kind-hearted people out there who are willing to give these dogs shelter or at least find time to feed those they see in the streets. Although these may seem like simple acts, they could create a ripple effect and inspire others to do the same.
Take it from a boy from Grozny, Chechnya named Ibrahim who made thousands of people smile with his good deed in 2021.
What would you do if you randomly saw a dog in the streets? If you ask Ibrahim, he will stop for that dog and give it a hug.

In 2021, Ibrahim captured the hearts of many after he stopped to hug a couple of stray dogs on his way to school to make sure they didn’t feel alone. He thought no one saw him, but there was, in fact, one person who did. One person witnessed the random act of kindness and love and captured the heartwarming moment between Ibrahim and the dogs through a video.
Most people can agree that not a lot of humans would stop to even say hi – more so to hug a dog on the streets. But this kid just showed that he has a pure heart. Several people praised Ibrahim's act of kindness, with some saying it was one of the most precious things they had seen in a long while.
“That's sweet, love his caring heart,” one person commented.
“One of the most precious and hopeful things I have seen in a long long time. God bless the animals and the child,” another person wrote.
“Such an awesome little boy to give some love to stray dogs,” one man remarked.
Meanwhile, others hoped those who saw the video would share Ibrahim’s kindness with the rest of the world.
“Kindness from a boy to a dog lights the hearts of all those who see. Share his kindness with the world!” one person said.
One of Ibrahim’s family friends, Katerina, attested to the boy’s kindness – the pureness of his heart and soul goes beyond embracing dogs or showing them affection. Katerina’s daughter goes to the same school as Ibrahim – and the latter would help carry her daughter’s bag.
“I saw the video. That’s Ibrahim. He goes to school with my daughter and helps her carry her bag. He’s a very kind boy,” Katerina told The Dodo.
