A North Carolina grandmother got a sweet surprise when she received a new pup while she was staying at a health facility.
84 year old Shirley Lann, had just lost her dog, Kinsey, after being 14 years together. She used to spend almost all her time with the dog that she shared with her late husband, who died in 2011.
Lann’s grandson, Matthew McVey said “My grandma has been pretty upset about the whole thing.” “We realized her mood had changed.”
Lann’s daughter then started searching for a new dog to help brighten up her mood. As soon as she found “Sammy” at a local shelter she knew he was ‘the one’.
Sammy is a Lhasa Apso, and a video of the moment when Sammy is gifted to Lann and she holds the pup tightly is so adorable.
It was a complete surprise,” McVey said. “It has brightened her mood and gives her something to look forward to when she gets out of rehab.”
Lann will be going home next week and will be reunited with her new beloved pup.
“She thinks he’s adorable,” McVey said. “She can’t wait for him to live with him.”
It’s so true that dogs are really a man’s best friend.
