We all hope that each animal can find a loving home forever, but the reality is that many stray dogs and cats survive on their own.
But some of these pets get by with the kindness of helpful strangers who provide them with food and shelter. And a stray dog knows exactly where to dine and becomes a popular regular at a fast food restaurant.
A TikTok user named Gio from Mexico introduced the world to Subway Sally, a stray dog who shows up at the Subway sandwich shop where he works every night for a bite to eat. And the employees are happy to comply. “We always feed them,” Gio writes in the TikTok video. He makes Sally a plate of bloodless reduce turkey and bacon, which the hungry canine luckily gobbles up.
It’s good to do for a hungry dog, but sometimes you just have to satisfy your loyal customers. The video went viral on TikTok and currently has more than 3 million views.
The viral hit made a lot of people ask about Sally. Some people pointed out that Sally seemed too groomed to be a stray.
In a follow-up video, Gio feeds Sally again and confirms that she is actually a stray, it just looks good because the “flower lady next door” likes to take care of her. He also claimed that he did not take the dog to a shelter because the closest one is 20 miles away and is a high-death shelter.
Others asked why Gio did not adopt the dog himself. He explained that he cannot take care of the dog himself because he already has five cats and that it is difficult to find someone who can because it is a low-income area.
“There are a lot of homeless people in our city,” Gio said in a third video. “I live in a very poor city. Most of the time, people can’t afford pet food. ”
And Sally doesn’t seem to want to be let in either: “Several people tried to take her away, but she never wants to go,” Gio wrote in a comment. “I suspect she has a permanent place to sleep and possibly take care of her puppies.” But at least it’s inspiring to see people go out of their way to care for their local stray dogs.
“My colleagues and I will still be feeding you, don’t worry,” Gio said.
A big thanks to Gio and his staff for making sure this poor dog doesn’t go hungry! Share this inspiring story!
