When This Lonely Man Met This Terrified Dog, It Was Love At First Sight

We Go Together Like. . .

Some pairings are easy — like peanut butter and jelly. But others aren't as obvious — like Coco and Allen. But while this pairing may seem unlikely, it's no less sweet!

Allen is a World War II veteran. His years of service were lively and exciting. But as time passed, things slowed down. And when his dog passed away, this 90-year-old found himself rather lonely and depressed.

That's when a Meals on Wheels volunteer brought Allen to the Dallas Animal Services Shelter, which operates inside of the local PetSmart. And there he was introduced to Coco, a 3-year-old Chihuahua.

Coco had been dropped off at the shelter by her previous owners who said they no longer had time for a dog. She was frightened and nervous in the shelter, constantly shaking, and desperately wanted a real home where she could be loved.

And that's exactly why God brought these two together!

The manager of the shelter says that as soon they put Coco in the Allen's arms, she "looked up at him, relaxed and quit shaking." It was an instant connection, and Allen didn't want to put her down, even to do the paperwork!

Apart they were just a lonely man and a frightened dog. But together, they are better than peanut butter and jelly. Praise God for bringing them together!

Allen and Coco make for a great pair. And here are some more unlikely duos to help you keep that smile on your face!
