Jack and Emily live in Philadelphia (USA) with their daughter Johanna. When she was a newborn, something happened in the middle of the night that changed their lives forever.

This event happened in October 2020 in a residential area of Philadelphia. Emily got up in the middle of the night to get her baby's dummy, who was crying.

Surprise late night visitor

When she left her bedroom to go to the baby's room, she noticed a presence in the dark. Sitting on the stairs of the house, she saw the shadow of a dog. But what was strange about this is that the family didn't have a dog… So, where on earth did this dog come from?

As if to check she wasn't seeing things, Emily turned on the lights and, sure enough, there was a dog. The animal was very thin, almost just skin and bones. It was frightened and seemed to be shivering with cold. 

The woman immediately went to check the security camera and that's when she realised the dog had got in through an unlocked door. 

The dog was old and abandoned

Not surprisingly, no one slept that night. Emily and Jack decided to take care of the dog and, the next morning, they took her to the vet for a check-up. There, they were informed that the dog was a senior dog, so her chances of being adopted from a shelter were very slim.

So, the couple decided to take the dog home again and keep her, naming her Suzy, and she lived out her remaining years being loved and cared for.

And yes, that's how this story ends - in the best possible way!
