Brian Myers rescued his German shepherd Sadie last fall, and she returned the favor last month.

Myers, 59, lives in Teaneck, New Jersey, and adopted Sadie from the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge in September. The bond between them formed quickly; she warmed up to Myers almost immediately, and when they got home, Sadie jumped up and put her paws on Myers as if to hug him. "It just seemed to me that she was saying, 'Thank you for rescuing me,'" Myers told Today.
