Amy Haden, a woman from Texas, lives with her family and their two dogs. Every day, she wakes up early in the morning and lets their beloved pets out to use the bathroom. She waits for them to come back after several minutes and lets them back in. It’s an everyday routine for all of them.
One early morning, however, she was up and about to leave the house when her daughter called her and yelled there was a dog on their back porch. Amy was confused. She was certain neither of their dogs was back so she went to check on it. And to her surprise and delight, there was, indeed, an unknown dog chilling on the patio furniture.
The dog was most probably a stray that wandered into their property, Amy assumed. But he seemed like he has made himself at home because he was just too comfortable where he was. He sat on the cushion and claimed it as his own.
Later that afternoon, when Amy came back from work, she thought the dog would be gone, but she was wrong. The pup was still there, exactly where he was when she left in the morning. And he just stayed and never left.
Eventually, Amy let the dog in so he wouldn’t have to be out during the night. She nourished him, gave him a spot to sleep, and even gave him a bath. She also took him to the vet to see if he had a microchip and he didn’t.
The kind woman looked after the dog while she sought his rightful owner. Meanwhile, she let her TikTok followers name him and they called him Walker.
Walker was friendly, gentle, and alluring, but he never got along with Amy’s dogs. Sadly, he couldn’t stay for good, but she wasn’t going to abandon him somewhere. And so, once she was certain no one owned him, she started to look for his new home.
In no time, an elderly lady came and offered Walker a home. She said she wanted a dog like him for the longest time and it’s a prayer answered that she met him. It was the happiest ending, after all.
