Bryant Fritz, local and now national hero, appeared on Ellen with his girlfriend Krystal Moya to share the story of the dog's rescue. They are going to be taking the dog, which they've named Dory (watching Ellen's face as they say that is great), home at the end of the week. 

After Ellen presents them with a whole bunch of items from her line of pet products, Fritz takes the moment to pop the question. Then, because it's Ellen, she sent them off with a $25,000 check. 

This video is well worth seven minutes of your time. It will seep into and soften even the coldest, darkest heart.
