What could be more heartwarming than to see the sweet, innocent friendship between a child and their beloved pet?

Little kids have such a great way of embracing animals into their lives. While sometimes children can bring unwanted guests home, like this hilarious little girl did when Mom found her in the kitchen with a giant new friend, for the most part, pets can make such a positive difference in a young person’s life. This is especially true for children who struggle with all different types of disabilities. Whether they are service animals, therapy pets or just creatures who brighten a little one’s day, as you can see in this video, a little love from a pet can go a long way.

In the following video, we see the remarkable bond between one little boy, Xavier, and his unexpected best friend. Xavier is confined to an electric wheelchair for reasons we’re unsure of, but as the sweet clip shows, he’s rarely alone. His pet horse, Savance, follows this little boy around just a like a playful puppy. The giant horse acts as protector and companion, and their unique relationship couldn’t be any sweeter.
