Blind Dog's Excited Reaction to Sniffing Owner Goes Viral Online

The heartwarming moment a blind cocker spaniel realized she had been reuinted with her owner has gone viral on Reddit.

In the sweet footage, shared to the forum by an account called WOOOOOOBLY, we can see a woman walking over with the dog.

A man then calls out to the canine, who is unclipped from her leash, and bounds over to smell the man.

When she realizes who he is the dog then starts delightedly leaping about in a circle.

He can be heard exclaiming: "It's me! It's me! I'm here!"

The adorable video, which can be watched here, is captioned: "At 15, her eyesight isn't that great, so she needs a little sniff before she recognized her owner."

Since the clip was posted on the discussion-based site on February 2 it has gained lots of traction, having surpassed 48,300 upvotes and nearly 250 comments.

One Reddit user, Raindrop777, wrote: "She may be 15, but she prances like a pup."

Another person, XComRomCom, added: "Beautiful, right? Doesn't matter how old, inside each senior doggo is a bouncy pup, even if they don't bounce as much anymore. Dogs are love."

JohnnyKay9 typed: "What a lovely girl. Give her a pat for me m8."

Yzheng_Bdfdshss remarked: "Some animals can so easily drag a person out of the depths of depression, even if only for a moment. Love this pup."

MirreyaCastaneda shared: "My 15 year old boy just passed 3 days ago, he was mostly blind and deaf but still could smell me and I guess sense my presence for peace. You were one of the best Jack Jack, love you forever dog."

SpiritedDrink896 gushed: "Oh bless that 15 year old puppy. Dogs are just amazing. Brought me to tears."

Bocote commented: "This makes me wonder if it were possible to give half of your remaining lifespan to your dog how many dog owners would take the opportunity."

Newsweek have contacted the video poster for comment.

Recently, another video went viral featuring a dog, this time showing the sweet moment a golden retriever befriended a window cleaner.

In the clip, which was posted to the social media app by an account called Pawbrey, we can see the fluffy pet standing in the living room of an apartment as a man on a harness lowers himself into view to begin cleaning the glass.

This prompts the pooch to excitedly bark and leap up wagging her tail, before then collecting a fish-shaped toy to offer her new friend.
