The idea of a home invasion is scary and having your things stolen is upsetting enough, but having your beloved dog stolen as well would just be absolutely devastating. It’s every dog owner’s worst nightmare: someone breaking into your house and stealing your dog. This woman must have been immeasurably sad when her pug was taken in exactly this scenario, but in her case it at least had a happy ending.
This heartwarming .gif shows the moment when she was reunited with her pug, after it had been stolen during a home invasion in Essex, England.
The .gif garnered over 5k up-votes on Reddit in only 12 hours, is actually from a video released by Essex Police in August of 2015, and which has over 2 million views on YouTube — which just goes to show, that if something on the internet is cute enough it will come back around.
