When this U.S. Army soldier returned from serving his country overseas, his loved ones were overjoyed to see him home safe and sound. But perhaps the family member most excited to see him was his loyal and loving four-legged friend. And seeing the footage – posted in September 2017 – of the moment when master and mutt were reunited could well bring a tear to your eye and a glow to your heart.
The dog in the clip is called Sadie, and she had waited a long time for her dad to come home. After all, her human father had apparently spent nine months serving overseas in the military. So while she may be a German Shepherd, in the footage Sadie is dressed in all-American attire in anticipation of her date with her dad.
The cute clip opens with the military man standing across from his home in Oceanside, California. He waits in desert uniform – indicating that he has very recently returned from his tour. And behind the soldier is a row of garage doors, one of which has been festooned with flag pennants and a homemade poster. The poster has “Welcome Home” written in black script – and a big red heart with an arrow through it inked underneath. Suffice to say, the stage is set.
