When dogs bond with humans, you surely can expect it to be for life. Dogs are fiercely loyal to their family and they consider them as his pack. This is why many rescue dogs living in shelters tend to become quite close to the people who adopt them.
A dog named Brindle was a rescue dog who had no family. Brindle was quite lonely and sad during his days at the shelter but that all changed when he was adopted by the Aument family. Brindle was especially close to his dad, JD Aument, and would constantly shadow him wherever he went.
Brindle couldn’t be happier to finally belong to a family. He gets spoiled with lots of treats and cuddles from JD. Brindle is especially close with JD and Rachel, JD’s wife, bonded with their other dog, Xander. Because of how close Brindle was with JD, it was hard for him to adjust when JD was deployed overseas with the Army.
JD worked as a firefighter in the Army Reserves and his deployment overseas meant that he had to spend a long time without coming home. Although everyone felt JD’s absence, it was Brindle who was affected the most. Brindle would mope around the house and he also kept watching the door hoping that the next person who opens the door would be JD.
There were even days when JD would spend his time looking out of the window while whimpering. Of course, JD couldn’t stand the thought of Brindle feeling he was abandoned. When JD learned that Brindle misses him, he had the best idea to cheer him up. JD decided to send Brindle something from overseas that would remind Brindle of him.
JD sent Brindle his unwashed shirt. When Rachel received the smelly package, she presented it to Brindle. Brindle caught JD’s scent immediately and his reaction was so adorable. Brindle’s depressed attitude instantly became happiness as he flopped on the floor and rolled around in his dad’s stinky shirt.
Rachel was crying in laughter so hard while she recorded Brindle’s reaction. Brindle carried the shirt everywhere and he would lay down next to the shirt when he slept. Rachel even put the shirt on Brindle to make it easier for him. Everyone misses JD.
Thankfully, JD’s deployment was almost ending and Rachel, as well as Brindle, didn’t have to wait much longer to be reunited with JD. After another month, JD came back home from deployment and you can only imagine how excited Brindle would have been when he saw his dad again in the flesh. Here’s a heartwarming video showing Brindle getting so excited by a smelly shirt that his dad sent him.
