For 18 months, the boy had been saving up spare change in hopes of saving enough to buy a puppy. But Grandma’s gesture made him cry…
Xander Mellor is a bright-eyed and intelligent 6-year-old boy from Springfield, Illinois, who had been saving up for the past 18 months to buy a puppy. Whenever mom Natalie Ellenburg would return home from work, he would politely ask her for the spare change she has on her and diligently put it in his savings jar.
Xander had even stopped spending on sweets and goodies because he desperately wanted a puppy of his own. When his grandparents heard about his endearing struggle, they decided to visit their wonderful grandson and make his wish come true!
We see Xander happily running out of the house the moment he sees his grandparents’ car. As he runs to the car door to greet them, Grandma asks him to close his eyes and stretch his hands out for a “gift”. The boy is all smiles as he waits for Grandma’s present, but his eyes open in absolute shock when he sees a cute little puppy placed in his arms!
Xander tries to smile gratefully for Grandma but he couldn’t contain his emotions for long. The overwhelmed kid ends up crying happy tears as he adorably holds his cherished puppy.
With dedication to savings and emotions like that, the pup will be well loved.
This little guy will learn so much watching his puppy grow up. ( as he grows up) What a great grandma!!!
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for making his dreams come true. Bless him and his puppy to a happy life full of lots of adventures.
