There’s nothing more precious than seeing a baby and a puppy sharing the same vibe. Especially when they’re growing up together. Rio, a Husky, and Hazel, a delightful little girl, have a bond that’s so sweet, it’ll make your teeth hurt! In the adorable video below, you get to experience their ever-growing relationship.


As a baby, Hazel was closely guarded by her puppy best friend. Once she was old enough to interact with Rio, the pair can be seen snuggling and playing– with happy faces and loving eyes. Hazel shares her snacks with Rio as well as her toys. Once Hazel could speak, one of her first words was “Rio.”


Children that grow up with dogs as siblings learn all about love, sharing, and patience. They are also more likely to become animal lovers– and appreciate what pets have to offer. Rio’s unconditional love and Hazel’s adoration are too endearing to miss. Check them out in the video and be prepared for your heart to soar!
