However, instead of being annoyed by the misbehaving parishioner and trying to get rid of him, Sobreira couldn’t hide a smile from his face and continued to play with the adorable distraction throughout the whole service. “The priest explained to the audience that [the dog] was a little boy and that he wanted to play.”
Since then, Sobreira has earned plenty of praise for how he received that “angel with four paws.”
After mass, church officials tracked the dog’s owner down and returned him to his rightful home. It turns out that the dog’s name is Herman, and his owner has been stricken with Alzheimer’s. Thankfully, the owner’s daughter was there to identify Herman and welcome him back into their household.

The video has already been viewed more than 5 million times. Many have praised Sobreira for the adorable way in which he handled the situation. Seriously, who could resist such a lovely dog?
