A Nevada woman who returned home to find an abandoned puppy outside her door was disgusted when she reviewed security camera footage and found that the dog had been cruelly left behind.
Toni Luisi of Henderson, Nevada, has released the heartbreaking footage in a bid to help find the dog who she has named Graci - a loving home and shame the owner who abandoned her.
I mean, how do they treat their children if this is how they treat their dog? said Luisi.
Luisi returned home on May 5 to find the distressed puppy loitering around outside the gates of her home.
Initially she thought the dog must belong to someone nearby, but when she reviewed the video footage she was shocked at what she saw.
An SUV had slowly driven into the cul-du-sac where she lives and then let the animal out before quickly driving off while the confused puppy tried to follow.
I just feel really bad that someone could actually just open the car door and just dump this beautiful animal, Luisi told KTLA.

That is seriously fupped uck.
Just make sure it is not Obama, or his cook...
I already have three dogs, or I’d take her...
Damn, I love dogs more than I do most people... dogs don’t f*** each other.
That’s going to be quite a large dog when it’s grown.
I cannot even watch it.
I live 18 miles outside a college town off a main drag through the forest. Every time a semester ends the college kids bring their kittens and puppies out to the “woods” and let them go. The dogs often try to stop cars by standing in the road and barking. I’ll come by later and they’ll be dead. I suspect the thinking is, “I’ll let them go in the woods.” Well, house pets abandoned in the woods are known as food. Or, perhaps they’re thinking somebody will adopt them. Well, what, all twenty or thirty of them?
Girls, boys, here’s a note. If your potential mate is willing to abandon a house pet they’re probably sociopaths.
Me neither. I started to, then shut it off.
Those people are complete a-holes.
Saw the video last night and it broke my heart..luckily a nice lady living on that block found her and has decided to keep her(Unless something has changed) such a cutie, I would take her, but Im bias, I would take in all abandoned doggies if I could
wow.. thanks for posting.
why do we need to see this?
We think something like that happened to our cat - my husband and daughter found her - or she found them - while out deer hunting. She’s been the best cat ever.
“Shes been the best cat ever.”
I think abandoned animals realize quickly that life is better from a can. My cat’s very appreciative too. (Although, she will play hard to please just to see if there is something better on offer that I’ve been holding back.)
I think this is what happened to our dog we have now. He is a doll.
My daughter insists that, as the cat bounded over the snow toward them, she was mewing: “Humans! I’m saved!” When we have guests, she greets them. When they leave, she wanders around the house, looking for them. She’s about as friendly a cat as I’ve ever met.
Frank Capra's Why We Fight comes to mind.
Someone abandoned a kitten at my pastor’s house. When he rescued him, the kitten was sickly and so badly flea bitten that his gums were white from lack of blood. My pastor couldn’t keep him because his wife and daughter are both allergic to cats so he came home with us. Today Charlie is a sleek and happy cat who loves to lie down and snuggle with anyone on the couch.
Thanks for sharing that. I love a happy ending!
“Humans! Im saved! “
I have, in weak moments, tried to save a couple of abandoned kittens. But I must seem very scary. I never managed to get them to come to me.
I’m afraid to pick up the dogs. Also, it cost money to take them to the pound and I’ve not had work for over a year. I’m living off my 401k. (Victim of the Obama economy.)
My Pound Pup was found wandering down a country road.
No doubt some idiot had done this to her.
Their loss and my gain, as she is the sweetest dog I’ve ever had.
I had stopped at a rural crossroads just out side of the college town Corvalis, OR and had a small puppy come out of the brush to my car. I was young and had never heard of the dispicable act of dumping puppies like that. I sincerely thought it belonged to a nearby farm house and took it there. The very kind lady said it was not hers but she took it in. Probably wasn’t the first time she took in throw aways. That puppy was young & small enough not to have made it through the night if I had not come upon it.
Charlie even plays fetch if you throw his favorite toy, a pipe cleaner.
lol! Snuggles sometimes thinks she’s a guard dog - no chipmunk, rabbit or squirrel is safe if it sets foot on our porch!
Very glad to hear the pup ended up in a better home.
Me and mine often say we will end up being one of those “crazy cat/dog” people - trying to rescue them all, small smile.
You know anybody in nevada who would like to take in a puppy?
“That puppy was young & small enough not to have made it through the night if I had not come upon it.”
I have a friend who lives outside a university town in Alabama. He’s on a farm and has taken in dozens of abandoned animals. He says he sometimes sits in his house and sees the kids dropping them off.
I just can’t imagine abandoning a pet. I’m a cat guy and I can’t imagine anything more loving and trusting than a cat you’ve raised.
From what I heard, the lady saw the dog and took her in..even if she does not end up keeping her, the doggy will find a great home..I hate hearing stories like this..we took in our neighborhood Shih Tzu Maxie because the couple on our block could no longer take care of him..I didnt want him to end up in some shelter so we took him, best decision we made, we love him just like we love our Pomeranian Mix Nemo..both our best boys
The large sedan slowed down right in from of my house, opened the passenger door and shoved out two dogs - one large and one small. Then, the driver sped away.
I remember the shock and anger I felt as these poor dogs ran frantically after the no-good son-of-a-bitch who abandoned them.
My sister once saw a neighbors kitten wandering the street. She scooped up the kitten, took it to the neighbor who owned it, only to be told that he didnt want the kitten anymore. It had chewed up one of his expensive house plants, so he tossed her out of his house and into the streets for good.
My sister simply took the cat home and she lived with us for over 20 years, until she passed away. The cat’s favorite thing to do was to climb up onto my left shoulder and just lay there, making herself comfortable. And she would gladly press her head and face into my cheek each and every time I would ask her for a hug.
My neighbors loss was my incredible gain.
All of Creation GROANS at the results of Original SIN! Poor Puppy. AND “Poor” over 50 Million Aborted Babies since the United States “Supreme” Court sentenced them to death by “Legal” Abortion.
As a kid many lunars ago I was riding my bike home on a busy street when up ahead a car stopped and let a small dog out and sped away. The next car the dog ran in the middle of the road and got killed and that car didn’t bother to stop. It was a sad moment for me standing over that poor little dead dog in the road. Some people just plain shuck to shinola.
It happens all the time in our neighborhood which is located a couple of blocks from a large apt complex. People get a dog then when they have to move or they find out its hard to have a dog in an apt. they drive over in our neighborhood and dump it out.
Our Chihuahua Coco who is just the prettiest dearest dog on earth was running up and down the street craning up to look in every car that passed to see if it was her owner. It was just pitiful. After a few days I couldn’t take it anymore and brought her into our house. You could tell where she had had a collar and they just took it off and then dumped her.
Our other dog Buddy who passed in March was dumped at the lake behind our house about 12 years ago. He had a crippled back leg so I was afraid if Animal Control got him they would just put him to sleep. I took him also and he was just the greatest dog ever. We are still not over losing him.
Not too long ago I needed new tires on my car. I went to the tire place and waited while they put new tires on my car. A friendly cat would enter the waiting room and I would pet it. The receptionist told me that they had plenty of cats on the property because people were actually abandoning them there at that tire place. The owners of the tire place would actually take these abandoned cats to a local vet to get them shots and spayed and neutered, then bring them back to the tire place and let them live there, feed them, until they found someone to adopt these cats.
We live out in the sticks. We had a kitten climb on to our deck start playing our children. Tiny thing - couldn’t have been weaned long.
We still have her, and she is my favorite cat - Archie the Volunteer.
Poor dog. Sad anyone would do that. Nice to have that camera, now she knows no point in reporting “found dog”,
But I doubt there is Lab in there. Likely a cover for what type it really includes.
One of the most cruel things I ever saw was when my landlord evicted a female and her offspring from one of his other apartments. She left a cat locked in the apartment, no food, water, or litter box. Just left it to die. By law, the landlord wasn’t supposed to be able to enter the apartment for 30 days following the eviction, so she knew the cat would be long dead by the time anybody found it. We saw the cat sitting in a window and called the landlord. Poor thing had been in there with no food or water for almost a week by the time they got it out.
I’ve come to the conclusion that a cat who adopts us is far more affectionate than the other way around. We’ve had this kitty since about 2006. Our vet estimated she was around 6 months old. She likes to watch tv with us, perched most of the time on my husband’s lap (she likes his blue jeans, I think). When she hears the intro to whatever series we’re watching, she comes running. If we decide to not watch anything in the evening, she comes and complains about the disruption to her routine. When she gets my husband up in the morning on time, she gets a treat. Consequently, she sometimes tries to get him up VERY early. :-)
Oh, yeah...I have cared for some of the cats abandoned by sociopaths here in soviet Red Hampshire.
I live in a tourist town. Those same college kids come here to work in the summer, get pets and in the fall take them out to the woods and let them go. Food for coyotes and mountain lions.
“She left a cat locked in the apartment, no food, water, or litter box. Just left it to die.”
People who do one “wrong” thing seldom leave it at that. There is something wrong with everything they touch. That woman was a classic sociopath. (At the very least.) I knew a guy who cleans student housing. He reported finding abandoned pets also; just left there.
Some of my friends call me paranoid because I don’t easily trust people. I have seen and read about too much of this sort of thing. The people who do things like this are often personable and seemingly friendly.
My mother used to say, “You watch how people treat others because one day they’ll treat you the same way.” Not only is that true, but it includes how they treat pets.
“Those same college kids come here to work in the summer, get pets and in the fall take them out to the woods and let them go.”
I would so much like to have another cat or a dog. But it’s like adopting a child. As it is, I have to make suitable arrangements for somebody to come in and take care of my cat when I must leave her. (I won’t take her to a kennel as that’s too damaging to cats.) I have in my will that whoever takes my pet at the time is generously compensated. When I leave the house I always have out several days food and water in case I get hurt or killed and can’t return. That gives my relatives time enough to arrive.
We have land in the Ozarks and city folk dump their dogs in the country all the time. It’s especially bad at the end of college and university semesters. When they chase and attack livestock they get shot. Many more get run over. But most starve. we rescued a number of them and found them homes.
We let Archie sleep with us and she gets the lions share of treats. But she doesn’t hang around with us outside of the bedroom.
Our house is very competitive, with six cats, notably Prince Tomas. Tomas is a rescued lilac Mekong Bobtail (sort of like a Siamese, but cuter with a stub tail) and is a young, curious and aggressive male. He loves his people, but likes to play with cat-siblings too much for their comfort. A lot of them spend their time outside during the day to avoid him. I keep him on my lap when I work from home to give them a rest.
You’re a good man. I applaud your thinking ahead for their well being in case of an emergency.
What a nice way to say murder.
Because we live in the country we get strays that have been let off all the time, we either keep them, call friends who might want a dog or take them to the pound.
My son has one now that we think someone actually threw out a window as they were driving. She seems to be healing okay.
When my friend and neighbor got a divorce, we ended up taking their choc. lab from them when he was on the way to the pound. He has turned into a real sweetie and as goofy as the day is long. We had his littermate from 12 weeks old and it only seemed fitting that we save this dog from the death that he were to surely meet if he went to the pound. Yes, two labs is a chore but they are so happy and goofy dogs and our kids love them more than I ever imagined.
Don’t go to the animal shelter if you feel like the folks on this thread. When my daughter volunteered there, the dogs were desperate to get out of “jail”. Barking like crazy while wagging their tails at warp 8. “Take me ! Take me !” Friendly as all get out - but desperate.
I had to leave. I couldn’t take care of 40 dogs when I already had a dog and two cats.
People who abandon pets are scum of the earth.
Every dog I've had has been homeless and not the best candidate for an easy placement. A dog chooses me, not the other way around.
My current dog is the best companion. Because he spent part of his life as an orphan, he learned to behave perfectly if he wanted to stay in someone's house. He knows how to greet people and charm them. On our many walks, he's the ultimate exercise equipment. He's leashed, but has a mind of his own and sets the pace, and has to be held back from breaking lose to enjoy a chipmunk (or whatever critter) dinner.
4 dogs 4 cats Last one found in a dumpster by my son. They all live and play on > 10 acres. Mostly wooded. The cats hang by the house. The big dogs play in the woods
A friend married a man who would torture and kill cats for fun. The marriage didn’t work - no surprise!
