A Vietnam War veteran made his last wish before dying in a hospice: to see and kiss his beloved dog for the last time.

Former Marine John Vincent, who fought in Vietnam, is 96 years old.

The veteran lived alone, with no family. All he had was his beloved dog, Patch. He rarely left him, even when he was riding a Harley.

The dog even had tiny glasses for such trips.

When the old man was taken to the hospice, there was no one to leave the dog with. Patch was temporarily taken to an animal shelter.

Soon the home staff were told that John was running out of time.

The old man made one last request. He wanted to see Patch and hug him one last time.

«When we heard about it, we immediately agreed. We decided to do everything in our power to make this meeting happen. We quickly found him, Patch,» said the Animal Welfare Manager.

Patch’s final meeting with John was very emotional.

«Yeah, it’s me, it’s Dad,» John said as Patch licked his face. — Are you glad to see me? I’m very glad to see you. »

The Animal Care Service posted photos of John and Patch’s last meeting on Facebook. It was a touching goodbye.

«It was such a heartfelt moment! They were so happy to see each other to say goodbye. It was an honor for me to fulfill the last wish of a veteran,» Danny said.

Patch returned to the shelter. But he was not left alone. He has already found a new owner.
