Dog Welcomes Home LDS Missionary


One dog gets reunited with one of his his best friends who came home from a two year LDS mission, and the reaction is priceless.

The father of the missionary, Allen Back, wrote on his YouTube channel, “When [our son] left [on his mission] our dog Bailey was very sad, he kept looking in his room for him,” Back said. “It was sweet to see our dog’s joyful reunion with his [friend.]”
