Lost dog who is reunited with his owner after a video of him waiting outside every day goes viral
A lost dog in Malaysia has been reunited with its owner after video of the pet waiting outside a shop in the pouring rain went viral.
The Video, posted to TikTok by user @jimjimmie in December last year, shows the dog sitting outside a shop in Sembilan. According to the store owner, the dog sat outside for four days in a row.
Jim, who usually records himself feeding stray animals, lures the dog into the shade with some food.
“Come here dog… Come eat. Even if you don’t want to eat, please stand in the shade here,” Jim says loudly in the video SAYS.

After the video went viral, the dog’s owner, Vaani, saw the post and immediately reached out to Jim.
Vaani, a 40-year-old mother from Melaka, said her dog Bairava went missing for eight months after they were separated while Vaani was recovering from an illness.

According to Vaani, her family rescued the dog as a stray five years ago, when Bairava was just a puppy.
“She still didn’t know anything. If she fell down a drain, she wouldn’t know how to get up again,” Vaani told SAYS.
When Bairava disappeared, the devastated family embarked on a month-long search. Vaani was concerned as she said her dog is very spoiled and likes to sleep next to her children.

“I walked around the neighborhood for a month screaming her name. But I’ve never seen her,” said Vaani. “People in the neighborhood knew me, some even asked why I was so loud.”
Vaani drove about 2.5 miles to where Bairava was hanging around after her sister stumbled across Jim’s TikTok video.

Bairava was reunited with her family late last year.
“I went there and called her name…we all cried and hugged,” Vaani said, adding that she felt blessed to welcome her back to the family.
Bairava’s story is reminiscent of an episode from the American animated series “Futurama”.
In the episode “Jurassic Bark,” the series performs a series of flashbacks to the main character’s dog named Seymour, who waits outside a pizza joint every day for 12 years in hopes that his owner will return.
The incident also commemorates Hachikō, an Akita dog who lived in Japan from 1923 to 1935.
Hachikō is known for his remarkable loyalty to his owner. After the death of its owner, it waited at a train station in Shibuya for over nine years. A statue of Hachikō was erected at the station in 1934.
Hachikō’s story was adapted into the 1987 Japanese film Hachikō Monogatari and the 2009 American film Hachi: A Dog’s Tale.
