A boy reunited with his beloved pug Piper a year after the dog went missing, bringing both the boy and social media users to tears with the precious moment captured in a TikTok video that went viral.

Posted by the pet brand Paw Must Haves, the clip begins with footage of the pup waiting in the front seat of a car outside the boy’s school, with several shiny bows tacked onto his collar to celebrate his return home.

As the boy approaches the vehicle, his mom can be heard from the driver’s seat saying, “Piper! Who’s that? Who’s that?”

The boy stops and bursts into tears the moment he recognizes his long lost companion. As he hurriedly puts his backpack in the back of the car, the dog’s tail begins wagging wildly.

The emotional reunion continues when the boy gets into the front seat and immediately engulfs Piper in a hug — evoking similar reactions from netizens.

“I’m ugly crying,” one TikTok user wrote.

“It’s just the raw honesty of the unconditional love,” another remarked.

This joyful moment reminds us just how deeply we cherish our companion animals, who are just as much a part of our families as our human loved ones, and how much they love us in return.

What’s New…
