Little Boy Is Caught On Camera Sneaking Out Of Bed To Sleep With His Dog

This is the adorable moment a toddler sneaks out of his bed in the middle of the night to snuggle with his best friend, Brutus, a boxer dog.In bed, the couple cuddled up.

Finn Knudston, 23 months, is seen in the video grabbing his blanket and teddy bear, climbing out of bed, and climbing into Brutus’ basket to sleep with him.Despite lying across the dog’s rump several times, the canine pal barely moves and allows the boy to get comfortable on his back.

Night camera footage captured the adorable moment Finn snuggled up to his ‘best friend’ instead of staying in his own bed.

Paige Knudtson, Finn’s mother, stated that the two have been inseparable since Finn returned home from the hospital.The child was born with a serious heart defect and required an emergency surgery to save his life.

She explained that an anatomy scan revealed Finn’s cyanotic heart defect when she was 20 weeks pregnant with him.”We were extremely fortunate to have discovered this prior to his birth, or he would not be with us today,” Knudtson said.
Finn was finally able to return home with his family after seven weeks of difficulties.”Finn had his arterial switch at 11 days old and did great, and the boy was finally discharged from the hospital after seven weeks, a few unexpected complications, and an additional surgery.”

And the bond between Brutus the dog and his baby brother was instant.”It was as if Brutus just knew Finn needed some extra close monitoring once we got home, and he has been by his side ever since,” Knudtson said.

Brutus has always slept with Finn because he believes his younger brother requires additional protection.
“At first, Brutus would sleep every night on the rug in front of his crib.””Brutus began crawling up and sleeping in bed every night; it was as if he laid next to him to prevent him from rolling out of bed,” Paige explained.

She even installed a camera in her home to investigate how her son ends up sleeping next to the four-year-old dog every night.”Finn spends the entire night with Brutus.The two always sleep together, whether in the dog bed, Finn’s bed, or on the floor, and my heart is melting,” Finn’s mother said.
