Energetic Golden Retriever Loves To Hug Everyone She Meets On Her Daily Walk

Golden Retrievers are intelligent dogs. They are loyal, obedient, and they tend to be friendly with strangers. The heart-warming story below told about Louboutina (or Loubie for short), an adorable Golden Retriever, who gives lovely hugs to everyone she sees on her daily walk.

This cute dog is spreading happiness through big hugs. We are sure this story will make your day brighter.

This is not a classic owner taking a walk with his/her dog.

Loubie stops for a few minutes to greet the strangers while walking in the streets, and when they stop to pet her, she immediately hugs them by wrapping her front legs around their knees.


Before Loubie wanted to give someone a hug, she would hold his or her hands. That ‘hug tradition’ started around Valentine’s Day in 2014, just after Fernandez-Chavez got out of a long-term relationship.
“She started sitting up and grabbing my hands with both of her paws, and then crossing the other paw over her paw,” Fernandez-Chavez said. “I remember joking with my friends, ‘At least I have someone to hold hands with during Valentine’s.’

Fernandez-Chavez never taught Loubie to do this – he says she does it all on her own.

Loubie started hugging everyone with pleasure, just because she loves to show affection to people and makes them feel happier and better. She even helps them overcome the bad experiences they went through during the day.

Loubie quickly began to extend her hugs towards others. She clearly enjoyed making friends and spreading love.

Loubie’s hugging habit continued and she started showing her affection in different ways.

Loubie has now become a social media star with the story of her hugs.

“Loubie seems to love hugging people – she wouldn’t do it if she didn’t. And the people she embraces clearly love it, too.”
