While out on a walk with a Buffalo Animal Shelter volunteer, a pit bull mix named Ernie met the man of his dreams. Prince Charming arrived in the form of UPS driver Jason Coronado, who welcomed the cheerful young dog up into his truck to say hello.
Just days later, Jason was back to bring Ernie home forever.
Love at first sight
Jason went home that night and discussed bringing Ernie home with the whole family, who enthusiastically agreed that a dog under the Christmas tree would be just fantastic. They made plans to complete Ernie’s adoption from the Buffalo Animal Shelter stat!
“He is probably my idea of a perfect dog”
Ernie and Jason’s ‘meet cute’ photos went viral thanks to a feature on feel-good Facebook page UPS Dogs, attracting a visit from a local news team.
Welcome home, Ernie!
From the loneliness of the animal shelter to a warm home for the holidays with all the scritches and treats he could want, Ernie is truly blessed.
Lucky dog with lots of new toys
