Attached was a screenshot of a Whatsapp message from her Dad which read: ‘So, Dave was out walking his dog and there was a couple walking towards him with a white version of his dog. Turns out they are brother and sister from the same litter. But instead of just playing like they do with other dogs look at this.

‘Turns out they are brother and sister from the same litter. But instead of just playing like they do with other dogs, look at this’.

The text was followed by two photos of the dogs on their hindlegs with their paws wrapped around each other.

Hundreds of Twitter users reacted to the charming images saying they were ‘gorgeous’ and made them cry.

Replying to the tweet, which has had more than 140,00 shares and 705,000 likes, one wrote: ‘OMG that brought a tear to my eye’

‘I didn’t have to cry this hard,’ another added, while another said the images were ‘so adorable’.

According to experts from Pets4Homes, dogs from the same litter who stay together until 16 weeks can often recognise each other in later life. 

However, this is more likely if they meet before they reach the age of six or seven.

If they are split up before 16 weeks – for instance, at 12 weeks when puppies are usually re-homed – there’s less likely to be recognition.    

It’s unclear how old the dogs in the picture are, and when they were separated. 

A study by the University of Belfast previously found that puppies showed a prefence for a cloth carrying the scent of their siblings 70 per cent of the time, and the same number could recognise their mother’s scent, even after two years of separation.
