As a puppy, life wasn’t easy at all for Brindle. The little doggy ended up at a shelter when he was only a couple of months old. However, his life dramatically changed when he met JD and Rachel, a young couple in Pennsylvania.
The couple already had one beloved dog, Xander, so they decided to bring him a companion. And the little Brindle instantly felt in love with his new family. However, even from the first days, he had a great fond of his fur dad; and the two of them formed an incredible bond. After all, according to JD’s wife, Xander was always closer to her, so it’s quite understandable why Brindle became closer to JD.
JD Aument serves in the US Army, so when he’s deployed overseas, the whole family misses him so much. But, it turned out the situation simply broke Brindle’s heart, as he looked devastated since his dad left. Always full of joy and energy, Brindle became just a statue of sadness. He even lost his appetite. He just sat there, in from of the window, looking through it and crying.
Rachel became afraid for Brindle’s life and at that moment it looked like nothing was about to change the situation. Yet, JD got a brilliant idea. He decided to send something to his four-legged companion; something to remember of him and the love he carries him.
The soldier sent a T-shirt he wear it for a couple of days for his beloved dog. The moment Rachel gave the smelly shirt to Brindle, it was like the whole world changed its course for the loyal doggy. Thankfully, she captured the moment on camera and it is so touching to see the joy on the Brindle’s face when smelling his dad shirt.
Since that day on, Brindle never left his dad’s shirt, until he returned home. Watch the dog’s heartwarming reaction in the video below:
