Christopher McCarron’s world was turned upside-down when his son, Chris Jr., passed away. He considered adopting a dog to help him cope with his grief and sadness.
Eventually, he headed over to his local animal shelter.
This decision impacted in his life for the better in multiple ways.
At the shelter, Christopher met a former guard dog named Jack. Christopher initially wanted to adopt a puppy; Jack the Rottweiler was about six. Still, their bond was instant and undeniable. Christopher realized age was not a factor at all, and knew Jack had to be his dog.
Christopher adopted Jack… but that wasn’t the only chance meeting at the shelter that day that would change his life.
As the proud new dog dad led Jack out of the Dog’s Trust Center in Scotland, he happened to bump into a fellow animal lover named Margaret.
The pair struck up a conversation. Christopher told Margaret he’d send her updates about Jack as he acclimated to his new home.
Christopher and Margaret fell in love and got engaged in the process.
Jack had been there for Christopher since the day he’d met his future wife. So when their wedding rolled around, Jack stood by his doting dad, acting as best man.
He even got dressed up for the occasion!
In the adorable clip below, Jack stares intently at Christopher while the vows are exchanged.
When it comes time for anyone in the room to offer an objection to the nuptials, Jack takes the opportunity to raise his voice.
Take a look!
