This is the adorable moment a young girl burst into tears of joy after coming home to be greeted with a new puppy.

Mum Amy Morgan, 37, from Northampton, decided to surprise her daughter Esmae, 9, with a new pet after she returned home from school.

Footage shows her daughter walk through the front door and into the lounge, oblivious to the young pup lying in an armchair.

But after being told to ‘look around’ the room, she spots the small puppy and almost immediately bursts into tears.

Amy said that she knew her daughter would be thrilled with the addition to the family.

‘She’d been asking for a dog for about 6 years,’ said Amy.

‘I recorded her reaction because I knew she’d have no idea – I’m a very open mum and I’ve been very firm in saying no all these years, so it was a complete surprise for her.’

Amy said she changed her mind about the puppy to give Esmae some distraction as her little brother was going into hospital.

She added: ‘My son, Eli, is 2 and has a condition called Craniosynostosis.

‘He’s getting surgery soon and will be in hospital for several weeks, so I wanted to get Esmae a friend to spend time with and distract her from the situation.’

Meeting the sweet Yorkshire Terrier made Esmae bawl, but Amy said her daughter wasn’t the only one moved by the puppy.

She added: ‘Initially, I just uploaded the video to show my Facebook friends. So many people commented saying how sweet and lovely it was.

‘I showed it to a friend who ended up crying too! After that I thought “I have to share this on my TikTok”.

‘It’s got a great reaction, which has made me so happy to see.

‘I’m a single mum and I love my children so much, I’d do anything to make them happy.’
