After nearly two years apart, an Iraq war veteran has been reunited with his military dog. The incredible reunion between man and his best friend will tug at your heart strings (video above).

Sgt. Jason Bos and his dog Cila joined the curvy couch today. In 2012, Bos left Iraq after a back injury but Cila was given to another military handler.

“I guess it didn’t work out, and they contacted me about two to three months ago and asked me if I wanted her, and of course I jumped at the chance,” he said.

Bos plans on getting Cila classified as a service animal so that she’ll be able to visit with veterans to help them out.
