It doesn’t get much more emotional than watching a dog reunite with his soldier of an owner after far too long apart.

But this video comes awfully close.

It features a man named Joshua Edwards who lost his Rottweiler named Duke many years ago when the canine escaped from the yard.

After trying for a very long time to track Duke down, Edwards gave up home.

Fast forward eight years (yes, eight years!!!) and Edwards receives a call from a pet chip company, saying it has found a dog named Duke and that the animal is registered under Joshua’s name.

It’s unclear where Duke was during this very long time away… but it’s not at all unclear just how happy pet and owner are to be reunited after nearly a decade apart.

Grab a box of tissues and see for yourself above.
