Emotional reunion between boy and his missing dog #TODAYShow

There’s nothing quite like finding something you thought was gone forever.

An 11-year-old’s dog went missing — for 8 months, an eternity for any pet owner — but then he returned, and the moment the boy reunites with his old friend is truly something to see and hold dear.

There’s an audible gasp from the boy when he first lays eyes on Jack, and the bear hug that follows is evidence that the bond between this boy and his dog is eternal.

According to TODAY, who reported the story and obtained the video, a neighbor spotted Jack at a gas station and brought him back home.

Somehow we know these two will pick up right where they left off.
