You know that warm, fuzzy feeling you get in your chest when you finally see your sibling after being apart for a long time? Well, apparently dogs get it too.
Initially, people thought pooches separated while young often could not recognise each other if they met later but apparently that is not strictly true.
Researchers said dogs who stay together for around four months have a huge ability to recall one another when they meet after being separated.
A dog owner named Dave, who was walking his little pet on the street, was surprised when his sweet animal ran towards another dog, which turned out to be its sibling.
The dark coloured pooch spotted a white one that looked like him and got excited immediately.
The two pets embraced and it was later discovered they were siblings from the same litter.
“So Dave was out walking his dog, and there was a couple walking towards him with a white version of his dog. Turns out they are brother and sister from the same litter,” Twitter user Libpincher shared.

He then posted a photo of the two dogs hugging each other tightly as they wagged their tails in excitement.
The two owners of the cockapoos had no idea their dogs were related in the beginning.
