DR CHRIS Brown has revealed a heartwarming story about a stray dog that crashed a wedding but it's what the bride and groom did, which will leave you speechless.
The 39-year-old Bondi Vet star, who is a presenter on Ten's The Living Room and I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here, shared photos of the pooch laying on the aisle as Marilia Pieroni and Matheus Martins prepared to say "I do".
The pair tied the knot in Laranjal Paulista Brazil a few weeks ago but heavy rain meant their nuptials were moved indoors when an unexpected guest showed up.
Dr Brown said "most couples hope their wedding day runs smoothly with no surprises" in a Facebook post overnight.
"But when a stray dog interrupted this wedding, the bride and groom did the most beautiful thing," he wrote online.
"With rain pouring down and guests trying to shoo him away, the street dog walked up and plonked himself down on Marilia Pieroni's wedding dress, right as the couple were exchanging their vows. He even hung around the couple during the reception. But as the party raged on, he disappeared into the night.
"The couple felt such a connection to the pup that they enlisted the local community to help them find him.
"A week later, the runaway pup was located on a street corner. Then in a beautiful gesture, they adopted Snoop. And giving this street dog a new life surely beats anything on the gift registry. Well done guys."
In an interview with The Dodo, Marília said she was more than happy to share the spotlight, and a bit of her wedding gown, with the pup.
"It was a very pleasant surprise for me, because I love animals," she said.
"I liked it very much. We decided to adopt him because he is a street dog.
"It took us a long time to find him again, but we were contacted and told his whereabouts. He came home, and I showered him.
"He played a lot, ate, drank water. He is very happy and slept super good the first night."
