A Kirkland, Washington, man found a surprise in his driveway recently - a small dog with a bag hanging around its neck containing a note and a small amount of money, according to MSNBC.

Paul Wu was leaving for work when he noticed the small King Charles Cavalier Spaniel on his property.

He then opened opened the note and was shocked by what it said:

"Please take care of Mr. B. He is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. Six years old. My parents got divorced and Mr. B was supposed to go to the pound. I think he has a better chance with you. This is my birthday money for any of his care. He is used to kids, not other dogs. He’s a good boy. I know God will take care of Mr. B – Everyone loves him…especially me. Thank you."

Wu decided to take the dog to work, to see if anyone in his office would be willing to care for the pet, as bringing him to the pound was out of the question. Shelters are severely overcrowded, according to the ASPCA.

"I’d hate to be a kid making that choice," Robert Kuchcinski, a co-worker who has three children, told the news source. "It didn’t seem right that it would go to the pound."

Kuchcinski took the dog home, gave it some dog food and then took it to a veterinarian health clinic to check its overall pet health. With only a mild case of dry skin, Mr. B was found to be in good shape, and now lives with Kuchcinski and his family.
