When He Takes His Dog Out For A Walk, She Stops And Wraps Her Paws Around Strangers’ Knees!

Sometimes you just need a hug.



At the end of a rough day being able to cuddle with a loved one is enough to recharge and refresh. Fernandez-Chavez and his dog Louboutina (Loubie for short) understand this idea.

Whenever Loubie and Fernandez-Chavez go out for a walk in Manhattan – Loubie will stop random people on the street and give them a hug.

Back in 2014, Fernandez-Chavez ended a long-term relationship just around Valentine’s day.

That was when Loubie decided that the world needed more hugs! Loubie wasn’t trained to give hugs – she just started doing it.

Those of us who have dogs know that they are rather perceptive.

Maybe Loubie can tell that someone she just met is upset.

Maybe she wants to help make them feel better. At first, Loubie just held hands.

Then, a few years later, she upped her game and gave full blown hugs!

In the beginning, Loubie would only hug Fernandez-Chavez, but that soon changed.

Loubie branched out and started hugging neighbors and then just any person she saw walking the street!

As you can imagine, the people were shocked, and a lot of photos were taken of the hugging dog! Loubie doesn’t just hug anyone, and you can’t ask for a hug.

Loubie decides who she will hug. After getting a hug from Loubie, everyone walks away with a smile.

Fernandez-Chavez says that it is rewarding. With a simple hug, one dog is bringing joy to the people of Manhattan! Share away, people!
