This adorable video chronicles a 10-year-old working dog, Darko, who will officially retire and get to go home with his former handler, Sgt. Daniel Cornier. The pair haven’t seen each other in 1.5 years. Darko gets so overwhelmed when he sees Cornier that he drags the Marine holding his leash over with him!
After spending 18 months in the Military kennel, Darko looks like he’s ready to enjoy his new home after a long career saving lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Want to see more of Darko? You’re in luck. He appears in Maria Goodavage’s book “Top Dog.”
