One dad was so moved when his family presented him with a new puppy, he couldn’t help tearing up over the surprise! In a sweet Facebook video of the moment, a small girl walks up to her father carrying a tiny pooch. As soon as Dad holds the little guy in his arms, he breaks down crying. Apparently, the adorable pup was the spitting image of his dog, Mika, who had recently passed away.

“I love that puppies can make even the most stubbornly manly men break down like babies,” wrote one commenter.
“Love that this family let the man work through it,” another added. “We are so quick to say ‘it’s ok, don’t cry!’ Sometimes even the strongest need to let it out.”
Dogs have a way of immediately melting our hearts at any age. Even this 97-year-old grandma got adorably excited when her family surprised her with a four-legged friend!
