The Gift-Giving Doggo Who Steals Hearts

The Gift-Giving Doggo Who Steals Hearts

Returning home to a smiling face and a wagging tail is one of life’s greatest joys, but for Savanna Westerfield, her dog Mango takes it up a notch by showering her with surprises every time she walks through the door.

No matter how rough her day might have been, Westerfield’s 12-year-old Yorkie/dachshund mix, Mango, never fails to bring a smile to her face with a random gift in tow. From toys to socks to even a plastic fork, Mango’s thoughtful gestures never fail to brighten Westerfield’s day.

Describing her furry companion as her “sweet little dog,” Westerfield from Salt Lake City shared,

“She is always so happy to see me when I get home, tail wagging and frantically trying to find something to grab and bring me.”

This habit of Mango’s started around six years ago and has since become an endearing routine that Westerfield cherishes. She couldn’t imagine arriving home without Mango’s special welcome.
