It’s not debatable that dogs are one of the most intelligent animals in the animal kingdom, which is why they are often used in the army or police forces. With their sharp senses of taste and smell, and their high-functioning brains that allow them to facilitate those senses, dogs are often used as police and military dogs and we can call them k9-dogs. Not only for those reasons, but also for their emotional intelligence and their undeniable instinct that gives them the ability to differentiate between good and bad.And because dogs are incredibly loyal, they are the best friends anyone could ask for in a time of need. This is why reunion videos like this one are my favorite thing to watch!

This video shows the heartfelt reunion between a soldier and his K9-dog after 3 years apart.

Army Specialist Vance McFarland and his K9 dog, Ikar, were deployed to Afghanistan back in 2012. Ikar is a German Shepherd trained to be a tactical explosive detection dog.

On September 2012, they both returned home, however, sadly, Ikar had to go back to the K9 program to continue his work. 3 years later, Ikar was still caught up in his work, but that’s when Mission K9 Rescue decided to try and reunite Ikar with McFarland.Because of their great work and dedication, McFarland and Ikar were reunited, and they will now spend the rest of their lives together. It’s great to see this kind of reunion happening, especially since it psychologically helps the soldiers adjust to civilian life better.



Isn’t it just so touching? Mission K9 rescue did the same for more than one case other than McFarland and Ikar, and we appreciate their work too much!Watch the heartwarming news report below and don’t forget to share the video with your family and friends!
