As Kodiak studied the stranger in his house, he was careful not to approach too quickly. In his old age, the senior pup began to have recall issues, with some things taking him a bit longer.
Luckily, Kodiak still has a keen nose, and as soon as he sniffed the woman, he knew exactly who she was. It was Megan Hill, who had grown up with Kodiak since she was in ninth grade, and was back to visit family. The dog’s cautious demeanor immediately changed and he rested his head in the woman’s hand, his whole body wriggling with joy.
Hill posted a video of their reunion, which you can watch here:
“With his age, he sometimes forgets me and my brother because we don’t live with my parents anymore and can’t visit them as often as we would like,” Hill said. “When he realized it was me, it was just extremely heartwarming.”

Hill’s family rescued Kodiak when the pup was just 9 months old. At first, the nervous Kodiak was terrified of men, but he quickly grew closer to all of the family members.
