Hollie Mallet was going through her security footage when she noticed something unusual a little boy regularly sneaking into her garage to pet her dog.

I wanted to find out who he was, Mallet said in an ABC News video. In an effort to find out who the boy was, she posted the video on her Facebook page to tell him that he was welcome to come see her Labrador retriever whenever he wanted.

Eventually, a woman named Ginger Breaux commented on the post to say that the hugger was her 9-year-old son, Josh.

Josh talks about your dog all the time! Breaux wrote on the post, according to ABC News. Every time we pass, he looks to see if she was sitting where he could see her. Just didnt know he was doing things like this. Last night when I first saw it, I was torn as a momma being happy and upset because he knows he shouldnt be on someones property, but I wake up this morning more happy that he just absolutely adores dogs so much.

Josh had a dog of his own, but it died last year.

In the meanwhile, Hollie said she is happy to share hers, ABC News reported.
