Dog-loving people sometimes do a lot of crazy things just to save pups that aren’t even theirs. This speaks volumes about our relationship with these furry goofballs, and sometimes all a stray pooch needs is someone to care. Fortunately for this homeless Black Labrador, he was spotted by a man who did care for him.
The famished furball was scavenging for food outside of Matt and Sydney’s house. The couple was alerted about the movement outside, and when they observed what the doggo was doing, they realized that he was searching for food. He kept coming back to their place and kept checking their garbage can, so they decided to do something about it.
One evening, they placed some dog food and a bowl of water outside, and when the doggo came, he ate his fill. They kept doing this routine every night until one day, Matt and Sydney decided to step out to say hi. The pooch got spooked and ran away, but the couple was hot on his trail.
They found out that the Black Lab was living in the bushes just outside their neighborhood. This got them worried because a storm was about to hit their city. So, the couple decided to try and earn the trust of this dodgy doggo. Matt sat outside their house every night for two hours, tossing treats towards the pupper.
He kept doing this for two weeks straight until one night, the doggo approached Matt. At this point, he knew that he had earned their furry friend’s trust. Matt petted him and had him eating out of his hand. When he moved to their backyard, the doggo followed him. And from that point on, the once stray pooch lived with them.
However, they couldn’t adopt this pupper for various reasons, which made the couple sad. Luckily, they found a forever home for this pupper, and it’s only a few blocks away from them! His new family named him Bishop, and he is an instant hit with his new humans. Watch Bishop’s journey in the video below.
