The fact remains that dogs are loyal to the people who care for them. Here is an adorable union between a retired working dog and his former handler.
He served as a security dog in Xichuan, in central China’s Henan Province, as WangWang, an eight-year-old German shepherd.
After retirement, the dog got a forever home. It was an indication that he was going to part ways from his handler.
Recently he got to meet his handler, Matan who is a policeman. His handler was patrolling in the neighborhood near WangWang’s house and he decided to give a surprise to his furry friend.
Mattan stood outside Wang Wang’s house and called out his name. Since Wang Wang knew his former handler’s voice, he rushed out to meet Mattan.
WangWang was unable to control his emotions. He licked the legs of his handler and cried tears of joy upon meeting his former handler. He did not want him to go away and stayed next to his handler.
The video related to this reunion was posted and it melted the hearts of the netizens. The post read that WangWang’s hair was whitened but he was well fed and he was getting fat.
Some people who saw the reunion wondered why WangWang was not allowed to stay with his handler as both of them shared a great bond.
As a response, Xichuan Police replied that while police dogs are well-fed at training centers, officers are not able to devote their time to playing with or exercising retired dogs. The retired dogs would be better off staying with a suitable family than at a training center.
Their relationship showed that dogs are undoubtedly loyal companions and adore their caretakers.
