One morning, a teenager heard scratching outside on the porch. He went to investigate and found a tiny puppy all by herself in the rain. He didn’t know what to do, so he called his parents at work.

They said that the puppy wasn’t allowed inside because their landlord would only allow one dog in their home, and the family already had a pup named Rocky. The landlord lives right next door, and the teenager’s mom and dad didn’t want them to get in trouble for having another dog in the house.


The teenager reluctantly agreed. He brought some dog food onto the porch and fed the puppy. She was shy at first but then realized she could trust the teen. She was very hungry and ate the food right up.

The young man wanted to do the right thing. He realized she could have a family that was missing her, so he snapped some photos and posted them online. He waited for a response. 


Meanwhile, it was getting dark out, and he was so worried about the little pup. Even though he knew he wasn’t supposed to bring the dog inside, he waited for his parents to fall asleep and then snuck her in.

The teenager sure is crafty. The story is far from over! To see what happens next, check out the video by The Dodo.
