Deployed Dad Sends A Smelly T-Shirt Home For His Dog, And He Adorably Freaks Out

The adorable puppy Brindle adores his folks more than anything else. When the dog was a puppy, Brindle’s parents, JD and Rachel Aument, saved him from a shelter. The canine was overjoyed to have a house.

Instantly, Brindle fell in love with his new home. Further, he quickly became best friends with his brother, Xander.

Xander, in Rachel’s opinion, is closer to her than Brindle is to JD.

JD is an army reserve firefighter. When he had to be deployed overseas, the entire family missed him. However, this change affected Brindle the most.

Without his dad, Brindle was miserable. He sat, looked out the front window for a while, and then started crying. Rachel told JD about Brindle, so he thought of a way to send his love and help his furry friend.

JD sent a smelly, used, and unwashed shirt for the dogs. As soon as Rachel gave the shirt to them, Brindle immediately recognized JD’s scent.

Brindle wagged his tail and rubbed his body against the shirt. Also, he rolled on and snuggled with it. According to Rachel, it was such an emotional sight.

Rachel felt comforted that she got to see the dog so happy again. During the time, Rachel even recorded Brindle being excited by JD’s shirt.

Brindle was never again seen without JD’s shirt after that day. He always brought it with him.

He even wore it while lying down and rubbing his body against it. He was certainly soothed by the clothing and felt like his old self once more.

Luckily, JD returned home shortly after. The whole family was overjoyed, especially Brindle who never left JD’s side.
