Boy's Emotional Reunion With His Missing Dog Is Undoing My Hard Exterior

I'm of the belief that people who don't cry at dog reunion videos are pretty much dead inside.

So with that being said, we have a test for you: will you ugly cry at this video of a young boy being reunited with his missing dog?

It's the best/most emotional thing you'll see today. Ready, set, cry!

The internet is chock-full of emotional reunions between missing dog and owner.

Take this owner who was reunited with his missing dog of two years after seeing him on the evening news.

The Milwaukee man, identified as Dwight, woke up to see his dog, Payday, in a dog adoption segment on FOX6.

Payday was originally brought home as a companion for Dwight's 12-year-old daughter.

She had been distraught over losing her best friend.

After calling the TV station, Dwight was put in contact with the Wisconsin Humane Society who set up the reunion.

Dwight's mom, Melissa, was the one who went to go pick up him.

The reunion was EVERYTHING. Payday jumped straight into Melissa's arms the second he saw her.

"We are beyond ecstatic for this amazing family to finally be whole again," the Wisconsin Humane Society wrote on Facebook. You can watch the heartwarming reunion for yourself!

If you're not crying yet, you will be over this next emotional reunion.

The clip, which has over 11 million views, was uploaded by the TikTok account @pawmusthaves. It starts by showing an adorable pug sitting in the front seat of a car parked outside of a school.

“Boy reunited with one year lost dog," the caption wrote.

This explained the celebratory bows on the dog's collar. “Piper! Who’s coming out? Who's that?" a woman's voice comes from behind the camera as a young boy approaches the vehicle.

The dog gets excited as he wags his tail.

Piper has seen him, but the boy has not.

The second the young boy recognizes his lost dog, he stops and bursts into tears.

He takes a moment to drop off his backpack in the backseat while Piper the dog continues to excitedly wag his tail.

Piper can hardly contain his excitement! He just wants to be in his best friend's arms again.

This happens a second later when the boy joins the front seat and immediately embraces his lost dog.

What happens next is a tearful reunion that would undo anyone's hard exterior.

The emotional video got TikTok users way up in their feels.

"As soon as he noticed his dog I teared up," one user wrote. "Welp. Now I'm crying," added another.

One pointed out the special bond between humans and dogs: "It's just the raw honesty of the unconditional love."

Many reflected on their own relationship with their furry canines.

Tragically, one person was extra emotional over seeing this video a day before they had to put their dog down.
