A four-legged Christmas wish has already come true for two sisters in Michigan.

The sisters, Emme and Ella, opened the front door of their family's Commerce, Michigan, home on Dec. 1, to see a box wrapped with a big white bow on top.

When the box began to move, the sisters started screaming and covering their mouths in disbelief.

Inside was a 10-week-old golden retriever, an early Christmas present the sisters named Skye.

The sisters' mom, Nicole Barclay, told Storyful that a puppy was requested in the letters Emme and Ella and their 2-year-old sister delivered to Santa Claus before Thanksgiving.

Barclay and her husband told their daughters they were going to a Christmas party on Dec. 1, but actually snuck away to pick up Skye.

When they returned, they dropped Skye off with a neighbor, who put the dog in the gift box on the Barclays' front porch and rang the doorbell for Emme and Ella to answer.
