Diamonds are a girls best friend and so are puppies- so what happens when they’re combined? This adorable boyfriend decided to find out by pulling off the best proposal ever.
Shelby Turner, 22, was moved to tears when her boyfriend, Shane 25, surprised her with a puppy with an engagement ring around it’s neck for her birthday last month.
However she was so excited about the arrival of her new puppy that she almost missed her boyfriend’s big romantic gesture.
Shelby posted the heartwarming proposal video on to YouTube last month with the caption: “Crying because I got my puppy, little did I know my boyfriend had put a ring on her collar and got down on one knee!”
The start of the video shows Shelby walking out of the house to greet her boyfriend who had just returned home with their new pet.
Shane can be heard saying: “Stand back. Let her run to you,” before placing the adorable pup on the floor and urging her to go forward to Shelby.
Shelby scoops the dog up and can be seen crying tears of joy while cuddling the new four legged addition to the family- while her husband-to-be encourages her to read the dog’s name tag, where the engagement ring is hidden, but she’s to distracted.
She then spots the ring and bursts into yet more tears asking Shane if he’s serious. It’s not until he gets down on one knee and asks: “Will you marry me?” that she realises what’s going on before falling sobbing into his arms.
‘Is that a yes or what?’ he asks as he gives her a hug to comfort her.
Since the video was uploaded to YouTube it’s been viewed well over 500,000 times and the couple, from Soldotna, Alaska, have announced they will wed in the summer of 2016 in their hometown after five years together.
