Truly heartwarming footage shows the moment a dog is overcome with joy after being reunited with his owner after two years of separation.
The video shows José Andaverde of Columbus, Wisconsin meet his dog, Chaos, who he gave-up after becoming homeless, reports the Huffington Post.
At first Chaos seems nervous, but as soon as he realises who it is, he goes crazy, jumping all over José, licking his face.
José got Chaos as a puppy but was forced to give him away to a friend when he became homeless after getting divorced.
When José finally got back on his feet his friend refused to give Chaos back to him but then last month Chaos was found abandoned and taken to Winnebago County Animal Services.
He was found to have been chipped and the shelter was able to track down José who was overcome with emotion.
I was speechless and I couldn’t stop smiling. I just couldn’t believe it… I couldn’t get to the shelter fast enough!

Please do not underestimate the importance of microchipping your pets. Jose was so nice and humble and we couldn’t be happier for him and Chaos.Advertisement
Thank you for microchipping and coming to pick up your long lost furry friend! He had been looking for you all along!
I’m just off for a cry, I may be some time…
