California resident Alexandra Del Cima captured video of the moment her family surprised her grandmother with a new puppy at their home in Escalon on January 11.
Del Cima told Storyful her grandparents had been asking members of her family for a puppy for months after their dog unexpectedly passed away the year before.
Del Cima stated her family was not planning on gifting her grandmother with the dog, but an opportunity presented itself after they learned a friend’s dog had a litter.
“Everything just lined up perfectly so we felt it was meant to be,” Del Cima said. “Her reaction was far better than anything I could have ever imagined.”
The dog is a Shih Tzu and Maltese mix and is nine weeks old, according to Del Cima. Credit: Alexandra Del Cima via Storyful
