6-year-old was saving up to get a puppy, but then his grandparents asked him to close his eyes and stretch his hands

This is what happiness looks like!


Letting your kids grow up around a pet is the best thing you can ever do for them. Cats and dogs teach young children how to be responsible from early age and make awesome friends.

A 6-year-old boy named Xander Mellor from Springfield, Illinois, has always wanted a puppy as a companion, so he made his mission to save enough money to buy the much wanted friend. His mom said how he would wait for her to get home each day and ask for her spare change to put in his saving jar for nearly 18 months.

Xander even stopped buying sweets in order to save the money as fast as he could.


But then, his grandparents learned what he was up to and just how much he wanted a puppy, so they decided to make his wish come true.

One day, they arrived at Xander’s house and the moment he saw them he rushed outside to greet them with hugs and kisses. His grandma then told him that they had a gift for him and asked him to close his eyes and stretch his hands. Little did Xander know that he was about to embrace the cutest little pup out there.


When he saw what his grandparents’ gift to him was, sweet Xander started shedding tears of joy. He couldn’t stop thanking them for making him the happiest boy. Everyone who has seen the video below commented how it was one of the best things ever.

We know Xander and his furry-pal will have great time together in the days and years to come.
