As the doting couple leaned in for a kiss in celebration, Lizzie couldn’t stop hopping around and nuzzling them. Luckily, the shelter had even arranged for a professional photographer to capture every part of the special moment.
Although the shelter has been the site of many previous marriage proposals, Filer said this was the first one to result in an adoption.
“Lizzie’s story is remarkable,” Flier said. “The fact that she got adopted is already amazing, but to become part of the family at such an important life moment is so full-circle.”
