An eight-month-old corgi from Georgia has broken countless hearts when it was discovered the little dog had lost his "true best friend."

According to Nugget's owner Miranda Wassinger, 22, her playful pup is nothing short of a social butterfly.

"He tries to make friends with everyone, whether it's people or dogs, or even little frogs he sees outside - he just wants to be their friend," Wassinger told BuzzFeed News.

However, despite showering affection to everyone Nugget encounters, there is one special animal who has gained his full adoration: his neighbor Bonkers, a pint-size pup.

Wassinger said since she and her husband are friends with Bonkers' owners, a brotherly relationship between the two dogs just grew from there.

"It's kind of like Bonkers is his family, and in a way, kind of his big brother," she said.

Whenever Nugget and Wassinger went for a walk, the good-natured dog would always pull his leash towards' Bonkers residence.

Sadly, tragedy struck for the best friends when Bonkers' family decided to move away.

"They just recently moved, like, a week ago," Wassinger said. "It hasn't been too long. Of course, Nugget doesn't know, and how do you tell a dog his friend's moved away?"

"[Nugget has] always had him in his life," she added.

Still unaware of Bonkers' departure, Nugget still instinctively runs to his best friend's front door.

"I don't know if he'll ever stop running to the neighbor's house, every time we walk by," she said. "But I keep telling him that we'll see him again soon, because we're good friends with his family."

Devastated by the pair's parting, people have taken to Twitter to beg for a reunion between the two dogs.

However, despite the loss of Bonkers, Wassinger has reassured concerned tweeters her pup isn't lonely.

"I do take Nugget to a dog park all the time and he does have a lot of dog friends that he meets there," she said.

However, Wassinger concluded: "Bonkers is his true best friend."
