This is single-handedly the most heart-warming and heartbreaking thing we have ever seen.

When a Belgian grandfather was struggling with loneliness after the death of both his wife and pet dog within just four months of each other, his family decided to find him a new companion.

Filmed by Davy Vanhaesendonck, the video shows what happened when the family turned up at his house, and presented him with a new six-month-old puppy.

Explaining the footage, Mr Vanhaesendonck wrote on YouTube that the gift was to "give him energy and the courage to continue his life...A moment filled with emotions!"
