Six-year-old Xander Mellor from Springfield, Illinois, had been diligently saving for 18 months with a single goal in mind: to buy a puppy. Every day, when his mother, Natalie Ellenburg, returned home from work, he would politely ask her for any spare change. He would then carefully deposit the coins into his savings jar, watching his dream gradually come closer to reality.
