GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Humane Society of West Michigan safely delivered two puppies Friday morning—Valentine's Day. One of the pups has a special heart-shaped spot on his back. 

They shelter is calling it a "Valentine's Day miracle," when a team member discovered a newborn puppy in a kennel shared by two dogs. The staff were shocked, a Facebook post says, and were able to safely deliver a second puppy. 

To make this love story even better, the puppies' parents are named Sandra Dee and Danny after the lead characters in the musical "Grease." And the newest residents of the Humane Society of West Michigan are named Kenickie and Rizzo. 

"One look at Kenickie’s heart-shaped spot and you’ll know it was meant to be," the Humane Society of West Michigan said. 

The family is recovering and getting to know each other. The shelter said the puppies are getting around the clock supervision since they require specialized care. 

The Humane Society of West Michigan said they "just wanted to share the love today," and if anyone wants to send a Valentine's Present to Sandra Dee, Danny, Kenicke and Rizzo they can donate to the shelter
