After Losing 50 Pounds, His Dog Didn’t Recognize Him. Then He Does THIS!

Dog Doesn't Recognize Owner After Weight Loss Until He Sniffs Him.

Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and it’s so sensitive, their smell sensitivity is expected to be 40 times more sensitive than our sense of smell. In fact, their sense of smell is so amazing that some dogs can smell cancer even at stage 0!

When Shane Godfrey returned home after fighting flu complications in the hospital for 5 weeks, he didn’t know how his dog Willie would react. He lost over 50 pounds while in the hospital and his dog didn’t recognize him at first. You somehow get the sense that he recognizes his voice but doesn’t recognize his owner.

When he finally gets brave enough to get close to him, he sniffs the strange man calling his name and he immediately recognizes his human.


When you have lost so much weight that your dog has to smell you to realize who you are. And being gone 5 weeks doesn’t help but the reaction as soon as he recognizes the smell is priceless. * Jukin Media Verified *
