Woman wakes up to find stray dog sitting on her porch, helps him find a new home

Walker made himself at home on Amy’s porch, sitting on her patio furniture and refusing to leave. She cared for the puppy and made it her job to find him a home.

Animals can come into our lives in unexpected ways. Many people have found stray cats or dogs in need of affection and a home, and have asked for assistance.

That was the case for one woman, who spotted a dog making himself at home on her doorstep and set out to find him a wonderful new home.

Amy Haden received an unexpected surprise early one morning when her daughter informed her that there was a dog on their back porch. Amy initially dismissed this as unimportant because the family already had two dogs.

But she quickly realized the dog wasn’t one she’d ever seen before, and he was peacefully relaxing on her patio chairs.

“It’s like he had taken up residence,” Amy told Good Morning America, recounting how she discovered the dog waiting on a chair. “He completely made himself at home on the cushions, and he just never left.”

The dog was plainly content where he was: day after day, the family discovered the dog remained in the same spot, refusing to move.

It was evident that the dog needed some assistance, so Amy began caring for him while simultaneously searching for his family by reaching out to the community and posting on Facebook.

While other neighbors had seen him around town, no one claimed him, and he did not have a microchip. “No clue where he came from, where he had been or what he was called,” Amy said.

The puppy was given the name Walker (Amy stated that she let TikTok name him), and Amy’s family cared for him for several months.

However, they recognized they weren’t Walker’s “forever family”. Amy had two dogs of her own, and they did not get along with the newcomers. Instead, she began searching for a permanent home for Walker.

Fortunately, Amy quickly discovered the ideal new owner for Walker: a “little old lady” who had been praying for a new puppy.

“She was super sweet,” Amy told GMA. “She told us that she had been praying for a dog like him and that we were the answer to her prayers.”

This sweet dog definitely picked the right porch to cozy up on. Thanks to this kind family, Walker now finally has a loving home of his own.
