Dog waits outside in the rain every day for owner — viral video leads to reunion

Dogs are such loyal animals. We’ve seen many stories of pets separated from their owners who can do nothing but wait for their return.

Like one dog, who, in a heartbreaking viral TikTok, waits for her owner outside a shop every day, even in the pouring rain — but now, the two have been reunited.

The video was posted by TikTok user @jimjimmie in December. A dog sits outside a shop in Sembilan, Malaysia in the pouring rain, looking sad.


It was clear the dog was waiting for someone. Jim tries to call the dog over to help her, but she doesn’t move. He wrote that the dog had been outside the same shop for four days straight.

In the video, the dog does accept the food she is given, but it’s clear she will keep on waiting in the same spot until her owner returns.

It’s a heartbreaking sight, but thankfully this story has a happy ending.

According to the Malaysian outlet SAYS, the viral popularity of the video helped the dog reunite with her owner. They report that the dog, whose name is Bairava, had been missing for eight months, until her owner Vaani saw the video online.

Vaani headed to the spot where Bairava had been waiting, leading to a heartwarming reunion: “I went there and called her name… we were all crying and hugging (our dog),” she told SAYS.

Vaani, a 40-year-old mother, says she rescued the dog as a stray five years ago. The two were separated while Vaani was recovering from a sickness and that’s when the dog went missing.

The owner had searched everywhere, but it was only after seeing the video of her loyal dog waiting for her that she was able to bring her home.
