Prepare some tissues because this heartwarming tale is sure to tug at your heartstrings. It was an emotional reunion when a former police dog met up with his previous handler.
Meet Wang Wang, an adorable eight-year-old German shepherd who spends his days working as a sniffer dog at a security checkpoint in Xichuan, Henan Province. However, come June 2019, he will be retiring from his duties and parting ways with his agent. But don’t worry, Wang Wang will be finding a loving forever home where he can spend the rest of his life enjoying his retirement.
Matan Wangwang’s former manager, who is now a police officer, pleasantly surprised his furry friend last month with a visit while on patrol near Wangwang’s home. The Xichuan police Douyin account, which is similar to TikTok in China, recently shared a video of the police reaching out to Wang Wang outside his house. Wang Wang was elated to see his previous handler and ran out of his front door to embrace him.
As the patrol came back to their vehicle, Wang Wang refused to budge from his previous owner’s side. The furry creature licked his legs while sobbing, showing his loyalty towards his human. Even when the patrol tried to leave, Wang Wang stayed behind and followed his manager around.
According to the message, Wang Wang’s hair had turned grey, but he still appeared healthy and chubby. Saying farewell to friends is never easy, as stated in the message. Netizens were touched by the touching reunion of the loyal dog and his trainer.
According to one observer, “Treat your dogs well because they are loyal friends!” Another person commented on how Wangwang appeared to be yearning for his handler.
The heartwarming reunion of the two left some spectators puzzled as to why the police dog and his handler were not allowed to be together. Responding to this query, Xichuan police explained that while their K9s are well-fed at the training center, their officers cannot spend time playing or exercising with retired dogs.
However, they assured the public that these loyal creatures will receive even better care and attention at home than in a training facility.
