This is the emotional moment a military dog refused to let its handler leave as the officer retired in China.

Footage shows the canine running after the soldier before wrapping its paws around the man, seeming trying to stop him from walking out of the barracks.

The three-year-old golden retriever named Da Mao had become inseparable with his trainer, Jia Chuan, after they worked side by side for the past two years, reported state media.

Mr Jia was due to retire recently after serving the Chinese army for eight years, according to a report by state broadcaster CCTV.

As he prepared to leave the camp, the officer bid an emotional farewell with Da Mao, the first search and rescue dog he had trained.

Mr Jia and his four-legged partner shared a strong bond and became best after working side by side for the past two years. 

After handing Da Mao over to his colleague, the officer is seen in the video petting his furry comrade one last time before walking away.

But the canine appeared to try to stop its trainer from leaving as it ran towards the man after breaking free from the leash.

Da Mao then jumped into Mr Jia’s arms while wrapping its paws around him, refusing to let the officer go.

When its new trainer tried to lead the dog away, it kept running back to the retiring soldier.

The heart-warming moment, filmed at an undisclosed location, touched the hearts of many after it was shared online.

One commenter said: ‘This is making me cry. Can they let the officer have the dog?’

Another viewer wrote: ‘The adorable dog knows everything! Best wishes to the veteran.’

Another tearful farewell was captured at the barracks in western China’s Xinjiang where a sniffer dog called Bei Bei had a hard time watching its trainer retire.

The German shepherd is seen in the video filmed in August holding onto the officer’s duffel bag with its mouth, unwilling to let go.

The hound even tried to stop the car door from closing and kept chasing the moving vehicle after the trainer waved goodbye at his best friend.
