This is the moment a little girl was brought to tears after she unwrapped her adorable surprise puppy.

Her parents, Donna, 39, and Scott Jackson, 37, from Andover, Hampshire, decided to surprise their daughters, Frankie, nine, and Riley, seven, with their dream puppy, Hamish, in hopes of helping with Riley’s anxiety.

The sisters, who both have special needs, had no idea that the 10-week-old cocker spaniel was waiting for them on the table, and for Riley, it came as a huge shock.

With a gasp and her hands clasped around her mouth, Riley began to tear up as she petted her new friend, and for Donna, it was a well-deserved moment to enjoy.

She said: ‘Riley is the kindest, most caring, girl. Her older sister has Down’s syndrome and is autistic, and Riley is just incredible with her bigger sister.

‘Often taking a back seat to her sister’s needs. She’s been wanting a puppy for a long time.’

Riley is also autistic and suffers from anxiety too, and so far, Hamish has had a positive effect around the house.

Donna is hoping Hamish will form a close bond with Riley, which would improve her wellbeing.

She said: ‘She suffers a lot with anxiety, and we hoped a pet may keep her calm and give her a positive lift.

‘Riley has been desperate for a dog for about four years, but we didn’t think Frankie was ready until she started working with them at school.

‘I think you can see from the video that daddy [Scott Jackson] was very emotional – we’d kept it a secret for two months because we knew how she would react.

‘Hamish is brilliant. He has settled in so well. Riley adores him.’

However the two sisters aren’t the first to be surprised with a new pet in recent weeks.

Lily Ganning, 20, from Staffordshire, and her boyfriend Tom Hewlett, 21, who is a professional footballer for Burton Albion, were left devastated when his cocker-spaniel died. 

But his girlfriend Lily was determined  to cheer him up by surprising him with two adorable canines.

The sweet moment was captured on video, and Tom’s reaction to the incredible pet is priceless. 

Footballer Tom couldn’t quite believe what he was seeing and covered his eyes in joy and shock.

Lily, a contracts administrator, decided to surprise her footballer boyfriend and purchase two new puppies.

The 20-year-old said she bought the puppies from a breeder on Pets4Homes. 

She explained: ‘We just found the two pups and they were the perfect ones.

‘I made sure Tom was home before us, he actually forgot his key that’s why he was sitting outside in the garden.

‘He had the best reaction I’ll ever see. I love seeing him happy.

We just lost our cocker spaniel to old age, and he really missed having a dog to love.

‘He loves them more each day!’
