Ian clarified:

“She is very old however so her two daughters take care of the dog full time, she just holds it and cuddles it while she is awake.”

Ian’s great grandma, Nadine, owned a service dog for 12 years until it passed away recently. She was devastated after her previous seeing eye dog Abby passed away on August 1.

She has been asking for a new one since.

So, for her birthday her two daughters and grandchildren surprised her with a Maltipoo puppy. Nadine lives in West Valley, Utah, with her two daughters.

"My great grandma clearly cannot fully care for a puppy, and that is why she lives with her two daughters who will be the primary caregivers and owners of the puppy."

Ian added:

“My great grandma is a WWII vet and the sweetest woman alive and I just hope this video spreads some joy."
