A man in Tbilisi, Georgia had a tearful reunion with his lost dog after finding him on a street. He sees a dog curled up on the sidewalk and as he approaches he calls his name.
The dog looks up and after a pause of a few seconds recognizes his long-lost owner. The dog whimpers and excitedly wags his tail as they hug and reunite.
A redditor shared some of the story of this heartwarming reunion writing:
“From what I understood of the story, the man lost his dog three years ago and received a phone call from a shop owner to let him know that a dog which looks a lot like his was laying in front of her shop. How she knew this I do not know, probably through some acquaintances.”
“Anyway, he made the trip and as he approaches he is in disbelief, commenting that it really does look like him… The way he calls him and the reaction of the dog speak for themselves.”
What a touching, heartfelt moment to watch. Click play to see their reunion.
There’s so much love and tenderness in that final shot. I’m so happy they found each other again. They must be so relieved to be back together once more.
News outlets later shared more of the story: “62-year-old Giorgi Bereziani lost his beloved dog named Jorge in 2015. All this time since then, he was trying to find his beloved companion. He was putting up ads, combing the streets, but all without success. Three years later, the workers of an opera house called the desperate man and said that a dog, looking like his dog, was walking near their building.”
“Giorgi immediately went to the scene. He saw a black and white dog near a tree and called its name. The dog rose to its feet and wagged its tail. Sniffing at the owner, George’s dog threw his front paws at him and began to whimper, as if in disbelief. ‘Jorge, is that you? George Jorge, it’s you! Oh, dear boy, how are you, boy?’ Giorgi says, beside himself with excitement.”
“Giorgi noticed a yellow tag on the dog’s ear, which meant that the dog was taken from the streets by animal control workers, but it was considered harmless to society, so the dog was vaccinated and released.”
P.S. For those wondering why the dog has a yellow tag in his ear, Georgia has a lot of stray dogs and ID animals that have been vaccinated, spayed or neutered.
