Woman Adopts Dog For Her 25th Birthday And His Resulting Happiness Is The Best Gift Possible

Imgur user ‘jekyllandclyde’ recently turned 25, and she decided to mark the occasion by bringing a new friend into her life. He adopted Teddy, a Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix with piercing blue eyes and an infectious smile.

“He’s definitely a chick magnet. He deserves all the attention he gets,” Teddy’s new owner remarked online. “I thought he was so loving and happy at the humane society… and then I brought him home and those eyes and ears just came to life!”

He knows that Teddy will help him stay active during the coming harsh winter months, he’s also “got a good snoot to boop.”
