Children and their love for pets is not uncommon. Innocence attracts each other, which happens when kids meet puppies. However, some little children have to make a lot of effort to bring their best friend home.

This story is about a six-year-old boy named Xander Mellor. He had always dreamed of getting a puppy and had been saving money for the past 18 months.

Mellor, an intelligent boy from Springfield, Illinois, would always stop his mom, Natalie Ellenburg, after she returned from work and ask for any change she had. He would then put it in his savings jar for his dream puppy.

It was hard to believe that a little boy would forgo treats and toys just to save for a puppy. However, he was unaware that his dream was about to come true. Mellor’s grandparents had heard about his efforts and decided to surprise him.

When little Mellor found his grandparents’ car parked outside his home, he was delighted. He happily walked towards it. Soon, his grandma got out of the car and talked to him.

She asked the little boy to close his eyes and stretch out his arms for a gift. The caring grandma then gently placed a tiny puppy in his arms. When Mellor opened his eyes, he was stunned by the surprise gift.

The little boy couldn’t believe his eyes and didn’t know what to say. He looked at his grandmother and his parents as he hugged the puppy emotionally. His face said it all. This was the best surprise the little kid could have ever expected.
