After a surprise visit from her former trainer, a former police officer’s dog can’t stop crying. Seeing the adorable moment captured on video in Henan province, central China when a former police dog met her handler for the first time after years of being apart.
The eight-year-old German Shepherd, named Wangwang, worked as a sniffer dog at security checkpoints in Xichuan county in Henan province, central China. She was adopted after retiring in June 2019, which meant Wangwang found a new home – and in turn was separated from her handler after years of working together. However, last month, her old colleague decided to pay a surprise visit to his four-legged friend, having been out patrolling in a neighborhood near Wangwang’s home.
Last month, when he was patrolling in the neighborhood near Wangwang’s house, the officer decided to drop in and visit his furry pal. It was such a big surprise for the pooch that she couldn’t control her emotions meeting the old colleague after years apart. As she realizes who’s waiting for her, a very excitable Wangwang rushes out of the front door to greet her old friend, running up to him before immediately lying on the floor for cuddles.
When they were reunited, both of them were struck with emotion, but Wangwang could not contain her feelings when she saw the man she had a crush on. On China’s equivalent of TikTok, Douyin, a retired dog, can be seen enthusiastically running up to her trainer in adorable footage. After that, the tears came!
The clip shared by Xichuan’s police showed the handler calling for beloved Wangwang from outside her house. Hearing the familiar sound and realizing where it was from, the dog rushed to the front door and ran into her handler’s arm. Tears started being seen on their faces.
“Wangwang’s hair is turning white but she is well-fed, she is getting fat,” the post reads. “It is always hard to bid farewell to your buddy.”
Viewers who saw the touching moment felt happy for the dog and the police officer. A user wrote:
“The dog is welling up. Dogs are really loyal companions, please treat her well,” while another added, “You can tell how much Wangwang misses her handler. You can understand when the dog greets you belly up.”
