Guy Wakes Up To Find A Random Dog In His Living Room
People usually go to someone’s home invited. They call the owner, ask if it’s ok for them to come over, and at what time. This is a common procedure, right? After all, no one likes uninvited guests.
However, this little fellow decided to show uninvited. How would you react if you woke up next to an unfamiliar guest? Well, this is exactly what happened to Jack’s family. Discover below how this unexpected guest got himself into Jack’s home and why this story is on the rise.
20. Not An Ordinary Saturday
It was 4 a.m. on a Saturday night when Jack heard something unusual. He was used to night noise, but this was different.
Jake and his wife just got a baby and they were adjusting to new responsibility and new noises. But, this wasn’t a baby noise.
19. Not A Baby Noise
Parents of a one-month-old baby spend more time being awake than sleeping. Of course, nights are no exception to that. So, what could this noise be?
For some reason, mothers tend to hear a baby crying faster than fathers do. That happened with Jake’s wife as well. And she had some shocking news for him.
18. Someone Was In The House
Jack was sleeping when his wife woke him up. She told him something that shocked him.
First, Jake’s wife told him that the baby was OK. Then she told him who the uninvited guest was.
17. How Did This Happen?
‘Jake, wake up. There is a puppy in our house’, Jake’s wife told him. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing. What? More importantly, how was this possible?
Naturally, Jake went down the stairs to check and there was actually a dog there. A small Lab mix was sitting in their living room. He was there, while all doors and windows were closed. So, how could this be?
16. A Stormy Night
Since there was a storm on the way, the Jokinen family had all the windows and doors closed. Or they at least thought so.
The very first thing that crossed Jake’s mind was that someone else was in the house. Hiding.
15. Was There Someone Else As Well?
Jake ran fast through the house until he was sure that no one else was there. At least, no one but his family members and their new dog?
Since no one was hiding in the closet, he had no idea how the dog came to be there. Were they chosen by this dog?
14. Checking The Security Cameras
The only way for Jack to discover how this dog appeared in his home, was to check their security cameras.
What he saw really shocked him. He would never have guessed that he was actually the one responsible for this dog being in his home.
13. Night Walk
He checked the security footage and saw himself coming back from the late-night walk with his 2-year-old dog George.
He was sure that he closed the door behind him, but it didn’t latch. The door was open all night?
12. A Stray Dog
So, as soon as the wind grew stronger, the door opened and remained open the whole night.
Then at 3:16 AM they saw on the camera a dog running down the street. The dog suddenly stopped in front of their home. What the dog did next, melted the hearts all over the world.
11. Finding Safe Haven
It was cold and raining, and the dog seemed bewildered and ran scared. The dog hesitated for a second and then ran into the house.
Once the dog was in, a person showed up and did the most unexpected thing ever.
10. Another Stranger
A passerby walked down the street after the dog entered the home, and noticed the open door. So, he stopped and came to the door.
He looked inside, made sure that everything was OK, and closed the door. If he even saw the dog, he had no idea that the new dog wasn’t Jake’s dog.
9. Meet Suzy
Jake couldn’t believe how much luck they had with an unknown stranger, who actually closed the door. He couldn’t believe that he didn’t try to rob them or murder them.
Now, when they discovered how this dog appeared in their home, they had to figure out what to do with this furry stranger.
8. The Animal Control
Jake and his wife decided to do what they can for this dog. The first thing they had to do was to make her feel safe and comfortable.
The next day they called animal control. However, they soon realized that this frightened girl wouldn’t survive there. She looked sick, scared, walking on three legs, with teeth all over the place. So, the next move seemed logical.
7. The Dog Wasn’t Actually A Puppy
Together, the couple took the dog to the vet. They were shocked to hear that ‘puppy’ was actually a nine-year-old dog.
She was covered in fleas and even had a paw infection, in addition to severe dental issues. They decided to help her.
6. Suzy Was The Best Thing That Night Could Bring
A number of bad things could have happened that night. Leaving the door open, especially on a stormy night, is never a good idea.
Therefore, the Jokinen family decided to keep the dog. Instead of being robbed that night, they got a cute senior dog who needed their help. They named her Suzy.
5. Going Viral
Jack tweeted a photo of Suzy and his story immediately went viral. In no time, people started helping. In a day and a half, Suzy’s hew family received $15,000 in donations.
Donations will help the Jokinen family cover the medical bills for this adorable senior dog. In the meantime, they met the guy who walked by and closed the door.
4. New Neighbour
Jake discovered that the guy who closed the door of their home, was actually a nearby neighbor, Steve.
Steve and Jake had a meetup and shared kind words on social media. Steve even wrote on his Facebook: ‘It’s everywhere. I have people messaging me from all over the country. it’s weird.’
3. No Chip
Many wondered what happened with Suzy’s previous owner, but as Jake posted on his Twitter account – Suzy had no chip.
The small dog is now a part of the Jokinen family and according to them, she is doing great. Suzy and George are becoming best friends, and the new dog is even great with the baby.
2. Staying Online
Jake is constantly updating the world on Suzy and her recovery. It seems that being transparent is important for this family.
Moreover, Suzy has a personal Instagram account now. She goes by the account @suzynpupman. In the meantime, she is enjoying her warm home and sweets.
1. The Future
Suzy is safe and she enjoys her new family. However, there is a long road to recovery ahead of her. With Jake and his wife, she seems to be in good hands.
At the moment, the main goal is to get Suzy to eat more, so she can gain weight. Probably for the first time ever, she has a real home.
