A homeless man in Houston, Texas, was reunited with his beloved dog Franklin thanks to the kindness of a stranger. Patrick, the homeless man, had been pleading outside of Walmart for help to raise the $120 needed to release Franklin from the pound.

Wilma Frice, a passerby, saw Patrick’s sign and was touched by his story. She couldn’t bear to see him separated from his furry friend, so she generously offered to pay the full amount.

“I’m just so shocked,” Wilma said on Facebook after reuniting Patrick and Franklin. “He is a wonderful man and Franklin is a wonderful dog. I did this because I would want somebody to do it for me.”
