Widower-grandpa breaks down after his family surprises him with a puppy

Husband and wife were inseparable for 63 years.

After she died from illness in July, 85-year-old François Vermeir was grief-stricken as he had "lost someone special".

Just before her death, the couple's dog died.

So his family decided to give him a surprise that will "give him the energy and courage to continue his life".

Grandson Davy Vanhaesendonck, who shot the video, said they bought him a puppy last week.

Make sure you have tissue nearby because the grandfather's reaction is certainly an emotional one.

Moved to tears

All we're revealing is the puppy's name.

A Yorkshire Terrier, it's called Snoopy.

Watch the video and be moved to tears.
