Anyone lucky enough to have a dog in their life knows their love is unconditional. It has been scientifically proven that hugging your dog has many psychological benefits and even helps you live longer. One of the puppies whose mission is to spread love is Wallace, a year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The soft ball of fur belongs to Dena, David and their son Noah. He loves nothing more than stretching out his little arms to hug his family and friends.
"He's sooooo nice and sweet," Dena told another news outlet. "He's hugging his dogs, family and loved ones. He's just a love bun. Wallace started cuddling about six months ago when one of his canine companions named Charlie playfully punched him.
"He was confused and thought it was a hug," Dena recalls. "He just stood there with his arms around him and kissed him. It wasn't a sign of aggression, but a hug. Then he did the same with his canine friend and cousin, and we noticed he was cuddling.
When Wallace was a pup he had an adorable heart-shaped nose, so his family gave him his middle name: Casanova. No wonder, then, that he grew into such a small lover. However, Wallace doesn't hug everyone — just his beloved dogs and family members. "He definitely doesn't do that with strangers," says Noah. "Mum and Dad love to hug him best."
