As fate would have it, Stray Rescue of St. Louis had a puppy named Nutty Buddy who looked exactly like Mellow. He had the same coat color and a similar white pattern on his face.
The parents immediately adopted the puppy, but decided to hold off breaking the news until Leo saw the puppy himself.

In this heart-rending video, we see Leo’s parents take him to the shelter under the ruse of “dropping donations”.
When Leo finally sees Nutty Buddy’s familiar face, he is hit by a truckload of emotions as he tries to process the situation.
In a tear-jerking moment, Leo sobs helplessly and embraces his new best friend with all his might.
We hope Nutty Buddy’s love helps him heal himself! What a beautiful start of a new friendship!
