The Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center helped Jeffrey the Dog find a home with two unsuspecting children at Southridge Mall on Thursday.

After meeting with parents interested in adopting a puppy for their two young children, both of whom had asked for a dog in letters to Santa, MARC officials found a match in a young puppy named Jeffrey.

Check out the YouTube video of the heartwarming event!
