You may wonder what secret life your pet lead before coming to you, but for the owner of a Labradoodle named Louie, the past just got a little clearer.
Twitter user @itswalela posted a picture of Louie in the park after he spotted another Labradoodle and immediately stopped what he was doing.
After talking to the other dog’s owner, Louie’s family discovered that the two dogs came from the same breeder and had the same parents. Yes, that’s right — the two dogs are brothers.
My fam got Louie (right) from a breeder years ago. Tell me why, Louie is at the park & stops dead in his tracks when seeing this dog (left). Turns out they are from the same breeder, have the same parents, meaning THEY ARE BROTHERS & RECOGNIZED EACH OTHER 😭 this shit made me cry pic.twitter.com/yfHxb74TEr

It’s totally wild to think that the two dogs recognized each other after all that time — we’re talking rom-com levels of serendipity.
Just imagine all their other dog siblings out there in the world. Labradoodles have an average of eight little pups per litter, which means there could be SIX more of Louie’s siblings out there in the world, just waiting to be found.
Of course, others hopped on to share their own stories of pets being reunited with their siblings.
I reunited these sisters after months of seeing them both separately and becoming convinced they were related. One is my friend’s dog, the other belongs to a school run mum. The dogs came from the other side of London and now live round the corner from each other. pic.twitter.com/gQB5oxIBhB

Now that these dogs have found each other at long last, hopefully they will have many future play dates in the dog park.
