When a Louisiana family installed a home surveillance system, they probably didn't think it would capture a moment as sweet as this one.

In 17 seconds of footage that is melting hearts, a young boy runs into the family's garage just to give a big hug to the dog sitting inside.

He then runs back out to his bike and rides off.

Attn Neighbors! Anyone know who this sweet little boy is? Every now and then when he rides his bike he will quickly come and love on my dog or play fetch real quick, but always leaves quick like he doesn't know if he should be here! I'd like to tell him he's welcome to stay and play, she loves the attention!

The boy's mother later reached out, explaining that their dog passed away last year.

"Josh talks about your dog all the time! Every time we pass he looks to see if she was sitting where he could see her. Just didn’t know he was doing things like this," she said, adding that she also did not like the fact that her son snuck onto someone else's property.
