Sgt. Jason Bos retired and was forced to return home without his beloved K9 partner Cila. Two years later, Cila retired. But as she exited the airport, she had no idea who was waiting around the corner.
The bond between retired Army Sergeant Jason Bos and his military dog Cici is a very special one indeed. They were together on over 100 missions and spent over 5 years with each other, protecting each other and giving each other much-needed love and companionship.
Cici was in charge of detecting bombs and was on the military frontlines protecting her fellow soldiers from unforeseen danger around the world, including Germany, Kuwait and Iraq. When Sergeant Bos was sent back home, the military decided Cici’s job wasn’t over yet. She would serve in war-torn regions for another year.
When they finally retired Cici, Sergeant Bos jumped at the chance of reuniting with Cici and began the work of officially adopting her, so she could stay with him forever. When she finally returned home, Bos was waiting to receive her at the airport, and so were dozens of reporters. Her story had caught the attention of local news channels.
In this clip, we see Cici recognizing Bos’s voice before she even sees him, and she leaps with joy seeing her old friend again. We are so happy this moment was caught on camera.
We hope Sergeant Bos and Cici’s time together is filled with loads of love and fun! It’s great to see reunion videos like this one, and hope all dogs in military service get similarly awesome retirements with their military buddies.
