Within seconds, the man snatched the new puppy out of his daughter’s arms and started cuddling him. When the young woman wanted to take the dog back so that she could introduce him to her mother, Dad wouldn’t let go! Luckily, Mom walked in at that moment, so she also got a chance to meet Archie. Her reaction was equally precious!

It turns out that there was a special reason that these parents were so thrilled to meet their daughter’s new puppy (apart from the fact that he’s incredibly cute). In her caption, the woman explained that Mom and Dad had been close to her previous dog, who passed away.

Commenters thought that the parents’ response to meeting their daughter’s new puppy was way too wholesome! Some even joked that the owner would not be getting her dog back, as her father seemed pretty attached.

“Archie is gonna be so spoiled,” wrote one user. “Grandma and Grandpa will be his best friends. Thank you for loving pitties.”

Another added, “Awe Archie is your brother now because Dad is taking him.”

It’s heartbreaking to say goodbye to a beloved dog. We’re so glad that this daughter and her parents have a new puppy in their lives!
