A bride-to-be has praised her 'wing woman' pooch for helping her to meet her fiancé.

Alli Gardner, 21, from Indiana, said her adorable beagle Miley helped catch the eye of Sidney Peterson, who she had had a secret crush on for months.

Twenty-two-year-old Sidney sent Alli an message on Instagram after finding a photo of Miley on the app's explore page and asking if he could pet the dog.

Alli said: "I had a foreign exchange student at my high school that went off to college and roomed with Sid. I had seen pictures of him and crushed on him very hard.

"To make a long story short I looked at his profile for, like, five months just hoping he'd notice me somehow!

"Then one day he told me he was on the explore page and saw a picture of me and my dog and sent me a DM."

Sid's message read: "If you let me pet your dog, I will be your best friend forever." The pair exchanged a flurry of flirty messages before deciding to meet up and go on a date.

Alli says the pair had an 'instant connection' and three years later got engaged.

Talking about the romantic proposal, Alli said: "My family was going out for dinner before I was headed back to school for the year.

"I really wanted Sid to come, but he told me he wasn't able to make the trip due to his parents being out of town and he had to watch his dog.

"But then when I walked out the front door to get in the car, he was down on one knee with roses, tears in his eyes, and a gorgeous ring asking me to be his wife."

Naturally, good girl Miley will have an important role in their couple's big day next year, where she will be 'Dog of Honour' and even have her own little dress. Very cute.

After sharing the story about how the couple met on Twitter, Alli says they have been inundated with messages and well-wishes from people.

She said: "I feel blessed that I have found someone so incredible and loving towards me. I didn't expect this post to blow up but when it did it brought us closer together because we were able to reminisce on our relationship.

"We loved reading all the nice messages and comments! It's been a very cool experience!"
