Dog Waited On The Front Porch For Weeks After His Family Moved Away

Cupid the pup sat there and watched as his beloved family packed up their house, loaded up their car, and drove away

He didn’t know what was happening, or why he wasn’t allowed to join then, he couldn’t do anything.

All he knew was that this place was his home, and maybe if he waited long enough, his family would come back.


Luckily, one of the neighbors stepped up and called Janine Guido, founder of the Speranza Animal Rescue to report that Cupid was sleeping on the porch, alone.

.“All I was told was that his owners moved out and left him behind,” Guido told The Dodo. “I asked multiple other people if they knew anything about the dog and they just said, ‘They moved out.’”

Guido came to get Cupid and found him eating of the dumpster, when she first tried to approach him, Cupid retreated back into his safe place.

She watched as he desperately jumped up and scratched at his front door, almost begging to be let in.

It really broke Guido’s heart, and she knew she had to help him.


She tried to feed the poor pup to get him to come closer to her, but he ended up just running away.

After a 30 minute chase, Guido figured out how to help, she just told him it was going to be ok.

“It sounds dumb but I swear he knew what I was saying to him. He literally came over and sat down and allowed me to leash him.”

On the ride home, she continued to tell him what was happening, like he understood her.


“He has been nothing but the sweetest gentleman since coming to the rescue,” Guido said.

“You can tell he’s still really confused. But he is happy to meet everyone with a wagging tail.”


After Cupid finished his checkups at the vet, he will be ready to find his new forever home.

“I don’t think that will be hard to find because he truly is the sweetest guy,” Guido said.

We believe in you Guido!
