This one-year-old proves love at first sight really exists as he meets his new German Shepherd puppy for the first time.

Eyes wide and mouth agape, little Finley Huckeby cannot hide his excitement at meeting eight-week-old Windy for the first time.

Pulling his brand-new pup closer to him, the obviously smitten infant wraps his hands around the shepherd’s body.

Stroking his new best friend for life, Finley just sits grinning from ear to ear at home in Kettering, Ohio, USA.

Dad Andrew said: “It was clearly love at first sight.

“We were so excited to see him so happy to see her, it was beyond adorable.

“Of course, we did not know what to expect, but it was one of the cutest moments, I’m so happy I was able to capture it.

“Finley was so little when we bought our other shepherd Moose home, so he couldn’t really react but he grew very attached to him as he grew.

“We did not know what he would think seeing what would look like a much smaller version of Moose.

“She loved him and he loved her, they have been inseparable ever since.”
