Rescue dogs help Merseyside man propose to girlfriend
Love and marriage... Jimmy, still looking for a home
was in the air at the NCDLs Merseyside Rehoming Centre
on Saturday as local man, David Bamford, proposed to his girlfriend
aided and abetted by the rescue dogs.
In a scene reminiscent of a romantic movie, girlfriend Michelle Moseley looked on in amazement as rescue dog, Jimmy, ran up to her with the words "will you marry me?" written on a piece of paper tucked in his collar. With David on one knee, there was only one explanation and the answer was of course "Yes!"
David explains: "Michelle is a real dog lover and a dedicated supporter of the NCDL, so I enlisted the help of my local Rehoming Centre in my plan.
"She had absolutely no idea what I was planning and was just walking round the centre when Jimmy ran up to us. I knew getting the words out would be emotional, so having a rescue dog do the honours for me seemed like the best idea. She said yes and I couldnt be happier!"
David and Michelle, both 24 years old, have been together seven years and both live in the Wigan area. They are hoping to adopt a rescue dog after they marry which should be some time next year.
After playing cupid for the day, two-year-old Jimmy is now looking for a loving new home.
Anyone interested in offering him or any of the other dogs at NCDL Merseyside a home, should call the centre on 0151 480 0660.
