When I first saw a story about a puppy getting rescued from a lake my heart immediately felt invested. And then when I learned it was right here in Illinois at my Alma Mater (University of Illinois) I was even more attached. The man who saved a caged dog from Kaufman Lake in Champaign County made an appearance on Ellen.

If you hadn't seen the original story here's what happened detailed by WCIA -

Well, the man who saved the puppy got the opportunity to go on Ellen with his girlfriend and of course nothing less than magic occurred. It is Ellen after all. Watch Ellen make dreams come true here -

I'm crying.

The vet who treated the puppy says it will be able to go home with to couple by the end of this week.
