A five-month-old Cane Corso/pit mastiff puppy was abandoned at the Pennsylvania SPCA headquarters. The little one was tied to a pole along with a note that read, “Good Puppy. House Broken. Don’t Have A Name.”

“We literally had to wipe away the tears from her eyes,” the SPCA wrote.

“Our hearts broke for her. She was so terrified… At just five months old, this sweet girl has been abandoned by likely the only family she has known.

“But she was safe with us now.”

The unexpected visitor was named Minerva, and she was there to stay, well, until the SPCA found her a new home.

Minerva’s story was so touching that it attracted the attention of a huge number of people and it didn’t take long before the right people contacted the shelter and asked to adopt her.
