SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif .– Last Christmas, Santa Paws of the Rancho Coastal Humane Society and his helpers delivered a puppy named Dylan to the Selistch family in San Marcos.

Twins Kendall and Jack and older sister Dillan had no idea their mother had arranged for the pet to be adopted.

“We were really excited and very surprised!” Kendall said.

“The dog’s original name was Dylan so it would be confusing so we changed the name to Scout,” Dillan said.

“When they introduced Scout to my kids they were in disbelief. It was lovely,” said the children’s mother Robin Selitsch.

It’s been a year since the Christmas surprise, Scout, was given to them at just 8 weeks old.

Now he has gotten a lot bigger.

Rancho Coastal Humane Society has been doing this for the past nine years; work with families to make sure the adopted dog is the best match.

Santa Paws can deliver bonus pets with a donation.

“He’s been a little rambunctious, but I like him a lot,” Kendall said.

“What I didn’t realize is how bonded the two dogs are and it’s such a lovely gift,” said Robin.

Scout not only became the best friend of their 3 year old Golden Retriever named Honey, he also inspired works of art in their home.

Robin’s daughters painted pictures of Scout.

The Selitsch family are encouraging other families to adopt pets this holiday season.

“Life wouldn’t be so happy without dogs,” said Robin.

“A lot more families should adopt dogs. A lot of dogs need a home. He’s a great addition to a family and it’s really rewarding for us too,” said Dillan.

The kids can’t wait to see if Santa Paws makes any new deliveries this Christmas.

“We had a great present so I don’t expect better, but maybe a kitten!” Kendall laughs.
