Dog Waited On The Porch For Weeks After His Family Moved In Without Him

A dog named Cupid watched as his family packed their bags and walked away from their house, leaving him there on the front porch. He thought that if he waited long enough his family would come back for him. Cupid wasn’t sure why this was happening or why he couldn’t join them. He waited there for weeks until the neighbors called Janine Guido, founder of Speranza Animal Rescue.

“All they told me was that his owners moved out and left him behind,” says Janine. ”
I asked many other people if they knew anything about the dog and they just said, “They moved out.”

Janine says she saw Cupid eating out of a garbage container. She tried to get closer to him, but he freaked out and ran back to his place on the porch. He was scratching at the door trying to get in. Janine tried to convince Cupid to eat something, but the dog refused.

Janine tried for half an hour to gain the trust of this dog but nothing was working, when suddenly it occurred to her to tell Cupid that everything was going to be fine. “It sounds silly, but I swear I knew what I was saying,” says Janine. “He literally came over and sat down and let me tie him up.”

He was such a good boy the whole trip home!

Cupid soon arrived at the shelter and has been slowly adjusting to his new temporary home. “He’s just been the sweetest gentleman since he arrived,” says Janine. “You can tell he’s still really confused. But he’s happy to meet everyone.”

Cupid still needs to finish all of his vet checkups, but once he gets the “OK,” he can find his forever home. Janine is very optimistic about Cupid and that he will soon find a new home and a loving family. “I don’t think he’s hard to find because he really is the sweetest guy,” she says.
