As someone who is an avid animal lover, there are certain things that will always make me tear up…

Nothing better than this…

…small animals being rescued, any animal finally finding a home, and soldiers returning to their pets after being away.

This one honestly pushed me over-the-top on the tearful factor because I didn’t expect the dog to be so vocal.

Hand me a tissue, please.

After some time away, this soldier returned to his beloved german shepherd.

The dog had been staying with his parents, and while they played with him and loved him, they just weren’t dad.

Playing wasn’t the same.

So when ‘dad’ came home, they decided they wanted to surprise the pooch.

The soldier’s dad starts the surprise by throwing the dog’s favorite toy and telling him to go get it.

When he does?

He immediately see’s who is waiting for him.

And it is beautiful.

I got it!

The sounds this dog makes are a mixture of incredibly sweet, and almost heartbreaking!

You can hear exactly how much he’s been missing his pet-papa, and how much it means to have him back.

Take a look!
