The special dog Golden Retriever forms a special bond with the unfortunate girl with a disability that makes everyone extremely touched

A disabled toddler and her golden retriever are the most adorable best  friends.

Mother of one, Cassidy Croot, 27, from Temecula, California, added two-year-old golden retriever Indie as a new addition to the family due to Brynn’s love of dogs.

After arriving at his new home, the pooch had an instant connection with his disabled human sister, four-year-old Brynn who has Leukodystrophy.

The pair has since documented their adorable relationship through a series of snaps and videos which they share online.

Since arriving home, Indie has made a huge impact on the family, helping Brynn with daily activities as well as being a companion to Cassidy and playmate to Sheltie mix, Peanut, five, and mixed breed, Piper, six.

Cassidy said: ‘Brynn’s favourite breed of dog has always been golden retrievers.

‘Whenever she’s upset or has had medical procedures done, we put golden retriever puppy videos on YouTube for her to watch.

‘Since Indie came in to her life, he’s never left her side. Every time she gets a feeding tube put in, he’s lying next to her.

Each morning, he’s cuddled up with her in bed. They both love bubbles and he will try to eat them whilst she claps and laughs at him.

‘They’re inseparable, he’s the reason she’s always smiling even when she does things she struggles to do, like brushing her teeth and hair.

‘Brynn had hip surgery in July, so has struggled to stand, but once we reach that stage, I know Indie will be right next to her, supporting her as she stands up.’

Leukodystrophy is a group of rare genetic disorders that affect the white matter of the brain, which helps form enzymes and manages the fatty acids within the brain and nerves.

Cassidy said: ‘Brynn’s diagnosis was a huge shock. As she wasn’t diagnosed until she was two, she seemed to be developmentally normal until that stage.

‘She doesn’t have head or trunk control and is fed through a feeding tube.

‘Since Indie first came home, he’s been by her side constantly, and every time she sees him, her face lights up. He’s one of the main reasons that she smiles.
