The overgrown pooch was reuniting with his dad, Trevor Chowder, who was returning from deployment in Afghanistan after spending nine months apart.
The loving giant, who is normally not allowed to jump up (you'll see why when you watch the video — he's as tall as his human companion) stares into Trevor's eyes and gives him a hug while standing on his hind legs.
Here's another video showing a soldier and dog's reunion:

To say that this boxer, Chuck, was excited to see dad come home is an understatement. He jumps out of the suv to greet him! The family went through the same thing last year when he came home.
