Joy Stone named the puppy Rey, after a "Star Wars" character and brought the dog home as a surprise to her husband.

"She is so sweet and has loved everyone she has met so far," Stone told ABC News today. "She can also get extremely playful and absolutely loves running around and playing with Kairi."

The images received lots of love on Facebook and both Stone and Allen hope they encourage future pet owners to adopt, not shop.

Allen said she's partnered with a local animal shelter and will be hosting "Doggie and Me" mini photography sessions in June.

"The sessions will be donation-based, and all proceeds will benefit the animals within the shelter," Allen said.
