Dogs bond with each other for a variety of reasons, but the sight of it is always amazing—especially when that bond is sustained in the midst of a horrible situation. Two former South Korean meat market dogs clung to each other while on a meat farm, and even though one was not tethered, he still chose not to leave his friend’s side.
In January, Snow, a Golden Retriever that was tied by a leash, and Noel, a mixed breed dog that was loose, were trapped until the Humane Society International (HSI) rescued them and dozens of other dogs. Their connection was so strong that Noel refused to abandon Snow until he was freed, according to One Green Planet.
Though they separated for the long trip from South Korea to the U.S., Snow and Noel have since been reunited. It was decided that the pair would go to the Washington Humane Society together, paving the way for this amazing and emotional video that the HSI posted on their Facebook page. As you can see, these two were pretty eager to make up for lost time.
The pair has since gone home to their forever family, prepared to enjoy a dog’s life in each other’s company.
