Dog Waits Outside Empty House For Weeks After Family Moves Away And Leaves Him Behind

A dog named Cupid didn’t understand what he did wrong.
Cupid had always been a loyal family dog. But when the family he’d been with his whole life moved, they left him behind. Poor Cupid waited and waited on their porch for them to come back for him, but they never did.

This sweet little boy watched as his family packed up all their belongings into their car and drove away.
And just like that, he was all alone! He didn’t know why it was happening, or what he did to deserve it. All he knew was that this was the place that he called home, and he was going to stay on that porch until his family came back for him!

Sadly, that was never going to happen, as Cupid had been dealt a sad hand.

When concerned neighbors first rang up Janine Guido, founder of Speranza Animal Rescue, she was told there was a dog sleeping on the porch of a house in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

What she found there left her so angry and heartbroken, she felt compelled to out Cupid’s parents on her social media feed:

“This is what your dog does, When you move out and leave him behind….” the post began.

Poor Cupid was so scared, he literally tried to claw his way back into the house.

When no one opened the door, the pup ran away, confused as to why his family wasn’t there to rescue him.

When the pooch finally came back around, Janine gently spoke to him, which seemed to calm him down. She told Cupid that she was there to help get him off the streets, and he believed her!

“I cried as I put your dog into my car. And even though I probably sounded crazy I explained to your dog what was going on the whole ride home.”

Cupid’s new home at Speranza Animal Rescue was filled with people who would love and care for him.

“He has been nothing but the sweetest gentleman since coming to the rescue. You can tell he’s still really confused. But he is happy to meet everyone with a wagging tail.”

He’s such a pretty boy! Even with clipped ears, he’s absolutely gorgeous. After some good meals, his coat will be nice and full.

The fact that he’s now standing tall and proud says that he’s well on his way to healing his broken heart.
