Little Girl Breaks Down In Tears After Mom Surprises Her With Shelter Dog – Heartwarming Moment
Mom surprises her daughter with shelter dog (Video)
Alexandria was browsing the Arizona Humane Society website when a photo of a black and white pit bull named Wyatt caught her eye. The 10-year-old immediately knew that this was the perfect dog for her family. Alexandria’s mom, Angela, told her daughter that they should wait a little longer before adopting a dog, but Alexandria continued to check Wyatt’s profile, making sure he was still available just in case her mom changed her mind. “He’s the one that’s going to take good care of us, Mom! If you go get him, I promise to love him forever and take really good care of him.’”
Wyatt came to the Arizona Humane Society through Project Reachout. “We collaborate with other shelters — whether they are overrun and have too many pets in their shelter, they have pets who have medical needs and they aren’t able to provide their medical care, or a number of other reasons,” Kelsey Dickerson, spokesperson for the Arizona Humane Society. “Through this program, we’re able to save more than a thousand dogs, cats and even critters sometimes from other shelters.” Wyatt came to the Arizona Humane Society in May, where he was treated for kennel cough. As soon as he was feeling better, he promptly won over the entire staff with his positive, loving attitude.
Her mom drove the dog over to her daughter’s school to surprise her
“Anyone who knew him knew that he was wiggly and so sweet,” Dickerson said. “He was described as a big ol’ love bug.” Unbeknownst to Alexandria, her mom made a secret appointment to meet Wyatt in person. “As soon as I met him, I knew he was the one for our family,” Angela said. Angela signed the adoption paperwork on the spot and drove Wyatt over to her daughter’s school to surprise her. When Alexandria walked out of class and saw Wyatt, she didn’t understand what was going on. It wasn’t until her mom showed her the adoption papers that it finally sunk in that Wyatt was now part of their family. Watch the video, the tears started flowing!
