Have you ever thought about whether your pets miss you when you are at work or what they get up to while they are all alone? The answer could break your heart.

Sad Staffie

When they checked the footage from their home surveillance camera, the owners of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier were surprised to discover what their pup does when the only one home.

In the clip, the dog can be seen with their owner’s white trainer in their mouth which they carry over to the sofa. The dog then climbs up onto the sofa and curls up next to the trainer – resting their face up against it.

Home alone

Dogs are social pack animals and love being around their human pack, so this attachment behaviour isn’t surprising. In some severe cases, it can lead to separation anxiety.

Many dog owners have commented on the clip shared on Reddit, with several declaring that they will never leave their animals alone at home again! One Reddit user commented that their dog does something similar but with the owner’s slippers. While it starts off being just one slipper, the dog will get the other one if the owner is out for too long!
