Henrique lives in Brazil and is a very lively boy, though he does have some mobility issues and often uses a wheelchair. Last year, his doctor recommended that Henrique get a dog to encourage him to move around more and refine his motor skills. His family auditioned a few dogs, but none were quite fit for the job — that is, until they met Pipo.
"One day my father's cousin brought over Pipo," Rodrigo Muraro, Henrique's older brother, told The Dodo. "They became friends immediately and have been inseparable ever since. They spend all day together playing."
The only time the boy and his dog are ever apart is while Henrique is off at school — but to ensure they're not apart even a few seconds more than that, Pipo found the most adorable way to greet Henrique when he gets home each day.
