Logan Kavaluskis of Hudsonville, Michigan, was 13 years old. Like so many kids his age, Logan dreamed of one day having a puppy to call his own. However, his dad Joe always had bad allergies and wasn’t able to give his son the dog of his dreams.
For nine difficult and emotional years, Joe battled myeloma cancer. He passed away in January 2020 at the age of 47.
Before Joe died, he came up with a very special surprise for his beloved son, and he got his wife Melanie and the rest of the family to help him deliver.
In the clip below, Logan’s cousin Jon turns around in their car and hands the boy an adorable Boston terrier puppy.
At first, Logan is under the impression they’re just bringing the dog to his new owner.
Moments later, Jon reveals the tear-jerking truth — that this puppy is Logan’s birthday present. And that wasn’t all.
That’s from your dad,” Jon tells him. “That’s your dog.”
Logan is shocked, having had no clue his father had arranged this all before he passed away.
“Dad wanted you to have a puppy.”
Watch the incredible moment Logan meets his new best friend, Indy.
