In a heartwarming video shared by the police, we witness the tear-jerking reunion between a retired German Shepherd Police Dog named Wangwang and his beloved handler. The video captures the emotional moment when Wangwang recognizes the familiar voice of his manager and excitedly rushes towards her. Overwhelmed with joy, the loyal dog clings onto his human companion, refusing to let go, and even sheds tears of happiness. It is truly a touching scene that showcases the strong bond between these two inseparable beings.
Wangwang, an 8-year-old German Shepherd, has been employed as a skilled sniffer dog at various security checkpoints located in Xichuan county, a tranquil town nestled in the heart of Henan province, central China. However, in June 2019, she gracefully took her leave from duty and embarked on a new chapter in her life – a peaceful retirement filled with contentment. An opportunity arose for Wangwang to find a forever home, where she could live out the remainder of her days in joy and comfort. But amidst this newfound bliss, there was a bittersweet caveat – she would have to bid farewell to her loyal handler, who had stood faithfully by her side throughout her working years.
“The Xichuan police department has a policy in place that prevents officers from spending time playing or exercising with retired police dogs, even though these dogs are well taken care of at the training center,” explained a spokesperson from the department. However, last month, a heartwarming surprise took place. While on patrol in the neighborhood close to Wangwang’s house, a police handler decided to pay a visit to their fluffy friend. The emotional reunion was captured in a video shared on Xichuan Police’s Douyin account, China’s equivalent of TikTok. In the clip, the officer can be seen calling out to Wangwang from outside her home. The sight of her beloved human brought tears to Wangwang’s eyes, and as she excitedly ran towards her manager, tears continued to stream down her face. It was a touching moment as Wangwang rubbed her feet and cried while being reunited with the police officer.”
After completing their patrol duties, the patrol unit returned to their police car, only to find that their faithful dog companion refused to let them leave and instead sat by the handler’s side. The accompanying post mentioned how the dog, affectionately named Wangwang, had aged with her hair now turning white, but she continued to enjoy her meals and grew plumper. The heartwarming video of their emotional reunion touched the hearts of viewers, who couldn’t help but express their love for the loyal canine. One person expressed their thoughts by stating that the dog was improving and emphasized the companionship and loyalty dogs offer, urging others to treat her well. The touching moment captivated the online audience, with another user remarking on the unmistakable longing in Wangwang’s eyes for her handler and how it’s evident through the sounds she makes.
