Family is an incredible thing—being related to someone is a bond that lasts no matter where you are or how far you are apart.
That’s what two little dogs proved after they instantly recognized each other on the street… because they were from the same litter!
The two cockapoos, Monty and Rosie, might not look immediately like siblings—they have completely opposite coats, one white and one black—but they were born to the same litter last summer.
“There were six of them,” Rosie’s owner Susan Killip told The Dodo. “But Monty and Rosie were always together.”
Susan adopted Rosie and a friend nearby adopted Monty. Despite living close by, they lost touch… until a fateful walk brought them together again.
The two dogs immediately recognized her and happily embraced. It was far more loving than how stranger dogs react when they pass each other.
“It was so lovely, they both just jumped up and hugged each other,” Susan said. “It was amazing they remembered each other after 10 months of not seeing each other.”
One of the owners took a few photos of the adorable scene, and the story went viral after someone posted the photos to Twitter.
It was clear there is still a lot of love between these two long-lost siblings… and their owners knew they couldn’t keep them apart.
“We will keep in touch,” Susan told The Dodo. “[It’s] a bit difficult at the moment, but after this is all over, we’ll be having doggy walkies together.”
It’s incredible how these dogs still love each other even growing up apart! Share this adorable story!
