Texas teen get gifts from strangers after naughty dog adoption

Brayden Nobles, Taryn Brooks and Eddie the dog.

A Texas teenager who gave up Christmas gifts to adopt a dog was wowed this holiday season when strangers reached out to give her the gifts she sacrificed.

Taryn Brooks, 15, saw a post about Eddie the dachshund mix in mid-November and knew she had to adopt the pup. At the time, his outlandish behavior was scaring the other dogs, so the shelter made a hilarious online plea for someone to step up and take him in.

The teenager’s mother, Linda Brooks, told her if she adopted the dog, she’d have to give up a few Christmas gifts on her list this year.

The teen decided Eddie, who turned out to be quite snuggly despite his fiery personality, was worth more than the all-white high-top Converse and hair curling wand she wanted for Christmas, so she made the deal with her mom.
