Girl Melts Down When She Is Surprised With Dog She Cared For At Shelter

An Oklahoma girl got to open her Christmas gifts early when her dad adopted the dog she was caring for at a shelter for months.

Hallee Fuqua really wanted to have her own dog and kept asking her father Lance Fuqua, who told her she would have to wait until she graduates to get one. So she started volunteering at the local Humane Society in Stillwater, Oklahoma, during her Thanksgiving break and connected from day one with Rambo, a Plott Hound and Mountain Cur mix.

Jackie Ross-Guerrero, the Shelter’s director said, “She would come in and just sit with him,” and added, “They connected from day one.”

Lance and his wife decided to adopt Rambo three weeks ago and kept it a secret from Hallee with the help of Humane Society who said they “don’t normally do this, but with Hallee, they made an exception.”

Hallee was “broken” when she found out through social media that Rambo was adopted, but had no idea that now he belonged to her. Watch this adorable video which will surely move you to tears.

Verse of the Day

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
