Loving Corgi Hugs Every Dog He Meets On His Walks

Dogs are the best, for many, many, reasons. However, one of their greatest gifts is their ability to give out unconditional amounts of love whether we need it, want it, or don’t quite know that we do.

And although some dogs are a lot warmer than others, there’s definitely no questions when it comes to which type of dog Wallace is. The adorable Corgi has a lot of love to give … or should we say hugs.

Wallace understands that times are tough, and the loving Corgi knows how to make things better — with a big warm hug. Well, as big as his little arms can stretch.

According to his owner, Noah Raminick, Wallace just can’t help but hug every single dog he comes across on one of his walks. The year-old Corgi loves to play and won’t let another dog pass by without giving him an embrace.

“He first hugged his friend Charlie and we were blown away. They were hugging and kissing. Then he did it to a few other dogs he knows well and we realized it was a ‘thing,’” Noah told The Dodo.

Amazingly, Wallace was never trained or taught how to give hugs. It’s just his own way of showing affection. Considering his middle name is Casanova, it comes as no surprise he’s such a little lover boy.

The name was given to him due to the heart-shaped nose he had as a pup. Perhaps a foreshadowing of the lover he’d soon grow up to be.

But like a true gentleman, Wallace, only gets close when he’s certain other dogs are comfortable with it. He gives them a brief sniff before getting on his two hind legs and wraps his little paws around them.

And if they’re not up for a hug, like Wallace’s Cavapoo cousin, Milo (who he won’t hug because she is afraid) he settles for a few kisses instead.

Big or small, Wallace doesn’t care, he’s gentler with the smaller dogs and absolutely fearless with large ones.

With a Great Dane as a best friend, it’s clear that Wallace doesn’t discriminate when it comes to who he hugs.

Wallace makes sure to spread the love when he’s with his human family, too.

His favorite things are morning and evening cuddles, playing fetch, and me chasing him around the house,” Raminick said.

Thankfully, there are dogs like Wallace out there who are making difficult times a little easier by spreading love.

In a year full of social distancing, lockdowns, and quarantines, it’s nice to know someone’s out there getting up close and personal!

10 of the Smartest Dogs in the World:


A friend of mine has a beautiful Dalmatian. Friendly, energetic and lovable, she was a perfect family pet… but she wasn’t the smartest pooch on the planet. See, she knew how to go through the pet door out into the garden, but she had no clue how to get back inside. It never occurred to her that the flap could swing both ways. So she would sit outside and howl until my friend would open the door.

Repeated demonstrations of the dual movement of the flap had no effect; it just did not compute. The dog breeds on this list, however, probably don’t have that problem. They’re widely considered to be among the cleverest canines in the world. Take a look and see if you agree.

1. German Shepherd

No surprise here. German Shepherds are the world’s best police dogs, military dogs, and some have even been movie stars (remember Rin Tin Tin?). Brave, loyal, smart and strong, they’re the total package.

2. Beagle

Also on the list of the best family-friendly dogs in the world, the Beagle has an incredible nose that lets them sniff out just about anything. Born detectives, they’re not the most trainable pets, but they are smart. And hey, nobody ever accused Snoopy of being dumb.

3. Golden Retriever

A popular choice for assistance dogs for their easy temperament, natural intelligence and loyalty, Golden Retrievers are natural guides and also serve as great rescue dogs. Active and fun to be around, they’re wonderful family pets.

4. Border Collie

Border Collies are considered by many to be the geniuses of the dog world. Expert herders, laser-focused (they’re known for their intense stare), and incredibly agile to boot, they’re workaholics and excellent athletes. Just don’t expect to keep one cooped up in an apartment.

5. Poodle


Did you know poodles were originally hunting dogs? They respond very well to training and are quick to learn tricks. So don’t let the fluffy looks and styled mane fool you! These dogs are among the smart canines around. Plus, they’re among the best dogs in the world for those who suffer allergies.

6. Belgian Malinois


A terrific military dog, the Malinois is a natural herder, tracker and worker. Smart, trainable and protective, these dogs require an owner who knows what he or she is doing. In addition to the military, Malinois are often recruited as guard dogs and police dogs as well.

7. Papillon

Named for their butterfly-shaped ears, papillons are small, cute and pretty smart. They’re considered the smartest of the toy dog breed, with intelligence levels comparable to the über-smart border collie. They’re alert and focused pets, and loyal and lovable: an ideal friend for he family.

8. Doberman


Sadly, Dobermans are known more for their ferocity than their smarts, but these are considered among the most intelligent dogs in the world, as well as one of the most effective guard dogs around. They’re outstanding students known to be affectionate and obedient.

9. Bloodhound

Don’t let the wrinkles and dopey expression fool you! Bloodhounds have the keenest of noses, and are often used for trailing (so much so that their evidence can be used in court against you!). These are loving but strong-willed dogs, and are often used on search and rescue missions.

10. Australian Cattle Dog

You need a smart, determined and energetic dog to control unruly cows. And that’s just what the Australian Cattle Dog, or ACD, does. They’re intelligent enough to herd these much larger creatures, and while they need their independence and wide open spaces, they’re eager workers who know how to get the job done.
