WATCH: Puppy tries following SUV after getting dumped on street

HENDERSON, Nev. — A family in the Las Vegas area is looking for a home for a 6-month-old lab mix after the dog was dumped on their street Monday.

Home surveillance video showed an SUV drive into the neighborhood earlier this month. Someone in the vehicle put the dog on the street and drove off. The video shows the puppy trying to follow the SUV down the street.

“I just feel really bad that someone could actually just open the car door and just dump this beautiful animal,” Toni Luisi told KLAS.

Luisi found the puppy, which she named Graci, outside of her home and has been caring for her.

“I mean, how do they treat their children if this is how they treat their dog?” Luisi told the station.

“We’re gonna keep her as long as we can. I mean, it would be better because she’s so young, to get into a stable environment now so that people can get used to her, train her the way they would like her to be trained. But I’ll keep her until … we find a good home.”
