The clip was shared on China’s version of TikTok called Douyin. It shows a shabby looking dog standing on his hind legs and running around in excitement when he recognises a car and the woman inside.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, was driving to her parents' home in Chongqing, China.

To her surprise she noticed a small dog following behind her car.

When the car stopped the motorist was greeted by an ecstatic pooch wagging its tail in excitement.

When the woman saw the dog’s eyes, she realised why he looks so familiar – it was her brother's missing pet.

The shocked woman took the dog home in a bag and is believed to have given him a well-deserved groom.
