Dog Embraces Woman Who Saved Him, Internet Swoons

by at .  Updated at . Comments

You often hear anecdotes of animals being able to experience and express humanlike emotions, and we sometimes see signs of this in our own pets.

This would be one of those times.

Happy Rescued Dog

Eva Armstrong, a director of Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, heads a volunteer-run rescue group that has saved more than 800 dogs to date.

On a recent trip to a high-kill "shelter" in Alabama, volunteers rescued a dachshund they named Captain Morgan because he had only one eye.

The night he was rescued, Captain Morgan slept at the foot of Eva's hotel bed. She took care of him until he was adopted by a family months later.

Then, last week, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue held a "reunion" where Captain Morgan and Armstrong were reunited ... and the photo says it all.

A picture of the two of them in a warm embrace quickly went viral.

Captain Morgan, now called Cappy by his adopted family, rests his head on Armstrong's shoulder, seeming to smile as if this is the best moment ever.

Group founder Sara Alize Cross said, "Whenever any of us run into dogs that we have fostered or rescued, they always recognize us and are so excited to see us."

"Dogs really do remember the person who saved their life and helped them on their way to a forever home ... the look on his face says it all."

However wrote this article really needs to do some research. Animals have been observed to display every complex emotion that humans are. If you have a pet then you would know this to be true.

Swoon is the right word. My heart just melted. Anyone who believes that dogs don't have their own individual personalities and emotions....well, this picture really does sum it up nicely.
