This Military Dog And Handler Have Been Separated For 2 Years - Their Reunion Is Amazing

A veteran who worked with a dog in Afghanistan has not seen his furry partner and friend in two years. He promised the dog that he would adopt him some day. He made good on that promise, and the reunion was a tear jerker.

Sheldon Holland is a dog handler, and he had a very special bond with Django, the dog he handled in the military. Sheldon's contract ended, but Django's military career wasn't over yet. The two were separated, but Holland made a promise to Django: when Django retires, Holland promised to come and get him and bring him home to South Africa.

It took a lot of work, but Holland never gave up. When the paperwork was finally approved, Django was flown to Johannesburg. Little did he know, his old friend was waiting for him at the gate.

People with cameras lined up to catch the touching reunion. When Holland called to Django, the dog froze for a second, as if something in his memory clicked. The well-trained dog then began pulling on his leash, dragging the person who was holding it.

Django was let off the leash and darted over to Holland. Tail wagging and tongue licking, Django was obviously over the moon to be with Holland again, even though the dog hadn't seen him in two years. If you look closely, it almost looks like the dog is smiling.

Reunited, the two can now go home for good. They've got a lot of catching up to do.
