Adopter Fails To Show Up For Dog, When Foster Mom Realizes She’s The One Taking Her Home

This is one of the most adorable and tear-jerking surprises I’ve ever seen.

Nicki Clawson had been volunteering as a foster mom for homeless dogs for over a year when she and her family received Cookie in their home to foster.

Nicki and her family immediately fell in love with the sweet and gentle boxer.

The folks at NorthWest Boxer Rescue knew Cookie would have a perfect forever-after in Nicki’s home, but instead of telling Nicki how they felt, they came up with a secret plan.

With the help of Nikki’s husband, Tim, and the Area Coordinator, Jessica, Cookie’s surprise adoption was in place. They cooked up a plan that was almost a week in the making — and so worth it in the end!

Nicki was told that Cookie had a meet-and-greet with a potential adopter. She brought Cookie to the location at the allotted time, but was disappointed when the hopeful adopter failed to show up.

But Nicki was about to receive the shock of a lifetime … and the video below shows how emotional this moment was for Nicki. She says she had been dreading the moment since she was told Cookie had to meet her potential adopters.

NorthWest Boxer Rescue sent us this touching update: “We are happy to report that Cookie is still very much loved by Nicki and an important part of their family three years later.”

Please enjoy this amazing surprise.
