Cute video, made me smile until I read most of the comments below. Can't we just appreciate a kid having a nice surprise with out getting all politically correct on each other. Btw, I rescue, rehab and rehome parrots and do not charge for it. Bottom line is do your research and be sure you are in it for the long haul before acquiring an animal for your family.

gee-lighten up some of you-a dog found a home-yes, i got my dog through petfinder but she is so happy and the puppy is
Petfinder are rescues and dogs and puppies in need of homes. Good for you!
Hope they have decades of happiness.
awesome parents I say!
You can learn a lot from raising a dog and this little girl looks like she's very capable of taking good care of her new pet.But I hope if it isn't a shelter dog, she's at least encouraged to look at shelter dogs first, in the future. They need homes and love, too.
Yes it is very sweet I just wish it was a rescue as I highly doubt it is. So a puppy will lose it's life to make room for more. Also hope the precious fur angel becomes a family member and not a passing fad. I also hope the little girl learns the importance of owning a fur companion and the importance of adopting and not shopping. Sorry been doing rescue for MANY years and too often see the dog end up in the shelter. Tears of joy are wonderful on anyone especially the young and elderly.
You have absolutely no clue whether or not that puppy is a rescue. Moreover, you don't know where the family lives, and if a rescue dog was an option based on their location. (All the rescues within 300 miles of our apartment only had large dogs, we needed a small dog. It was really hard to find one that met our family's needs.) We looked for quite some time before making the decision to buy a dog, but I continue to volunteer time and supplies for rescue organizations. Not everyone is able to adopt, even if the dogs are out their to be adopted.
You didn't look hard enough. There is a puppymill bust every few days in this country. There are also transports that will transport the dog for you. Not ideal as you always want to meet adopters but a local group could have screened the application and you. Well for those adamant on "buying" spend a day in a kill shelter then come talk to me.
And if no one buys the dog from the store, where does it end up? In a shelter. Just be thankful ANY dog has a home and look at the big picture for crissakes!
Clearly you never took economics classes. It is called supply and demand. You don't shop the shops don't supply. Hey at least if the puppymill dog made it's way to a shelter it would be out of a cage and not have hefty price tag attached and the hopes of finding a good home and that pathetic pet shop would stop buying them. Educate yourself on the process.
I see the chill pill didn't take. Either that or you like my *ss since you are still riding it! Okay, I'm up for 'educating'! Web names can be deceiving but I gather we are both women so I'll bring the dildos!
NO. We have to spread the word: DON'T buy, ADOPT!!! It's because ppl like YOU don't care that we have the problem in the first place.
Take a pill!!! I'm not pushing people to buy OR adopt. I don't even own a dog! I'm just saying I'm glad someone is taking in a dog---or cat---by any ways or means. GET A GRIP!!!
What's also amazing and wonderful is that she says Thank you for the obviously unexpected gift! Happy Birthday sweetie! And a good time with your new friend.
She's adorable..........and so is the puppy!
