We get that we’re a bit biased being a pet website and all, but is there anything cuter than a young baby meeting a new puppy? Take a look and see for yourself…

Name something cuter than a brand-new puppy meeting her human sibling for the first time. We’ll wait… Nope, we thought not.
Get ready to giggle
In this delightful video we see nine-month-old baby Michael meeting his five-week-old French Bulldog sis Stella for the first time and the result are insanely cute.
As a very young puppy, Stella does little more than bounce around excitedly which is much to the delight of her big brother.
Baby Michael giggles and reaches out as the tiny pup does her thing. In fact, every time Stella moves, Michael has a fit of the baby giggles.
An internet sensation
Unsurprisingly, the video has had millions of hits on YouTube with people commenting that this looks like the start of a long and wonderful friendship.
Dog and baby mama, Brianna, has promised to post a video update soon and we’re already checking and re-checking the account. We can’t wait to see these two grow up together.
Remember, safety first
We love watching babies and pups playing happily together but it’s worth noting that you shouldn’t leave young children alone with dogs, no matter how happy the two seem to be together.
And anyway, if you left them alone, who would be there to capture all the adorable videos?

Are Bulldogs good pets?
The French Bulldog (or Frenchie) is a bold, loyal and affectionate member of the family. They're not very athletic so long hikes might be out of the question but they'll enjoy playing with family members young and old.

Which dog breeds are great with kids?
Dogs can be fantastic companions for kids and a pooch will often become a child's best friend. All dogs will make wonderful companions for someone but if you have little ones you should do your research. As a general rule of thumb, avoid smaller dogs as children can sometimes become a little too rough. Similarly, the largest breeds might not understand their own strength when it comes to rough and tumble play with a kiddo.
