Mum Jamie-Louise Wallace, 29, from Merthyr Tydfil, from says the family in Wales has been sent over 1,000 clips from as far as Australia and Mexico.
She said: “We have been overwhelmed with the response and the number of videos.
“We have had videos of people’s dogs singing or saying ‘hello’. We had one dog saying ‘I love you’, and another dog playing the piano.
If Harvey could talk, he would thank everyone from the bottom of his heart.Harvey’s mum, Jamie-Louise
“It’s not just dogs. There are videos of turtles, cats, chickens, horses, snakes and fish. Messages have come in from Alaska, Australia, and Mexico.
“We are encouraging people to use #HoundsforHarvey and we hope to show Harvey every video we are sent.”
Harvey, of Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, was born with series of complex conditions.
In January he was diagnosed with complete gut failure and can no longer be fed.
Doctors then dealt the family a devastating blow when they said they had done all they can.#HoundsForHarvey
The youngster recently met the Wales rugby team just before their Six Nations Grand Slam victory.
A post of the meeting went viral after being shared by Harvey’s cousin in Canada mentioning his love of dogs.
Jamie-Louise said: “If Harvey could talk, he would thank everyone from the bottom of his heart.
“We didn’t think we would run out of time so quickly, but we are now preparing to go home to spend the time we have left together with his little brother and sister.”

Harvey was also recently visited by a therapy dog called Nico.
Jamie-Louse added: “All of Harvey’s discomfort and agitation seemed to melt away when he stroked Nico, something which is only usually eased with medication.”
Harvey is being cared for at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales in Cardiff.
Bethan Simmonds, from the charity, said: “As much as we all want to, it isn’t always possible to make everyone better.
“But together, we can help make little differences for wonderful and courageous families like Harvey’s.”
