Just in time for Christmas, parents in Oklahoma surprised their daughter with a dog she had been caring for at an animal rescue.

The heartwarming moment was caught on camera.

For many years, Hallee Fuqua asked for a dog for Christmas.

Her parents kept suggesting she wait until after graduating from college to adopt a dog.

So Hallee began volunteering at a local humane society, where she found a dog named Rambo.

She instantly fell in love with Rambo.

But Hallee was heartbroken to learn that Rambo was adopted.

What Hallee didn’t know was that her parents had secretly adopted Rambo three weeks earlier. They surprised her with Rambo on Sunday.

Go here for the video.
