As a puppy, life wasn’t easy at all for Brindle. When he was only a few months old, the little dog ended up in a shelter. 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, he adored his fur dad from the beginning, 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 understandable why Brindle grew 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. Brindle, who was always full of joy and energy, had devolved into a sad statue. He had also lost his appetite. He just sat there in front of the window, crying and looking through it.
Rachel became afraid for Brindle’s life and at that moment it looked like nothing was about to change the situation. JD, on the other hand, had a brilliant idea. He decided the decision to send something to his four-legged companion as a reminder of him and the love he carries for 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’s heartwarming to see Brindle’s joy when smelling his dad’s 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:
