A dog named Cupid watched on as his family packed their bags and moved away from home, leaving him there on the front porch. He hoped that if he waited long enough his family would return for him. Cupid wasn't sure why any of this was happening or why he wasn't able to join them. He was waiting there for weeks until neighbors made calls to Janine Guido, founder of\u00a0Speranza Animal Rescue.\r\n\r\n\u201cAll I was told was that his owners\u00a0moved out and left him behind,\u201d Janine tells The Dodo. \u201cI asked multiple other people if they knew anything about the dog and they just said, \u2018They moved out.\u2019\u201d\r\nCupid was waiting for weeks on the front porch of an empty house for a family that was no longer there\r\n\r\n\r\nJanine says she spotted Cupid eating out of a dumpster. She attempts to approach him, but he becomes scared and runs back to his spot on the porch. He was scratching at the door trying to get inside. Janine would try to convince Cupid to have some food, but the dog wasn't having it.\r\n\r\nRELATED: 5-Year-Old Boy Saves Family And Dog From House Fire\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nJanine tries for half an hour to win the trust of this dog when she suddenly has an idea.
