Awww, get out the tissues – this beautiful moment between a reunited dog and its owner may just have you reaching for one.

Giorgi Bereziani (62) from Tbilisi in Georgia in the US had spent three years looking for Jorge, his beloved dog, and even put up notices – but with no luck. 

However, everything changed when an opera house worker called him a few days ago to say he’d spotted a dog that looked like Giorgi’s outside their building, Daily Mail reports.

In this heart-rending video Giorgi is seen approaching the black and white pooch which is lying curled up under a tree.

“Jorge, is that you? Jorge, Jorge, it’s you!” he says in disbelief. “Oh, dear boy, how are you, boy?”

Hearing his long-lost owner’s voice, Jorge’s ears prick up before he approaches Giorgi. After sniffing him and realising it’s indeed his former owner the dog starts whimpering loudly in excitement and jumping up.

The two then head home where Jorge is re-introduced to more family members, who are as excited as he is.

Luckily Jorge had been able to fend for himself during his three years on the streets. At one point he was taken in by a shelter, identified by the yellow tag in its ear, but later released.

The online video has warmed the hearts of millions of dog lovers, with one gushing on YouTube, “I cried four times” and another saying, “I cried as the dog did . . . wow . . . thank you . . . please let them stay safe forever.”

We second that.
