What will you do if you get hungry at night? You’d probably wander into your kitchen and fix yourself some sandwich or get some biscuits. But, that’s just us, humans. Well, for this adorable pup living in Portales, New Mexico, going to Subway is the answer. On January 7, 2020, a Twitter user shared a TikTok video of a dog patiently waiting outside of Subway.
The video was from TikTok user Kxnuko, who has since posted another 2 videos of Sally that he dubbed “3-Part Mini-Series on Subway Sally”. The first video gained 3 million views and more than 42,000 views as of writing.

According to Gio or Kxnuko, Sally comes to their store regularly and that they always feed her. In the video, Gio prepared a meal for Sally that’s consists of some roasted chicken, strips of bacon, and a couple of slices of ham. It was evident in the video just how excited Sally was to receive her meal from her friends in the store. Not everyone was happy about the video, though.
Kxnuko’s post on TikTok has over 30,000 comments, and some questioned why he wouldn’t take Sally home. Another comment said that Sally looked too clean and didn’t want to believe that she’s a stray. Fed up with all of the people asking him about Sally, Gio then posted the second video to answer some of the comments.
This video begins with Sally waiting for Gio to feed him with some chicken and turkey slices. Gio also gave her some water while explaining that Sally will go to Taco Bell across the street if they can’t feed her on time. He then proceeded to tell viewers that Sally is, indeed, a stray and that she had four litters since he started working at the store.
The pup looks clean and not mangy because the lady in the flower shop next door likes to bath her now and then. He also explained that he couldn’t take Sally to a shelter because the closest one is about 20 miles away. How about taking the dog home? No can do as Gio already owns five cats. In another video, which Gio says will be the last post about Sally, he mentioned that some college girls tried to take Sally home.
Many people already tried taking her, but she never wants to go. He commented that maybe Sally has a regular place to sleep where she cares for her puppies. Portales, according to Gio, is a poor town and that there are a lot of strays in the area. Sally is not unusual. But, he and his co-workers will continue to feed and care for Sally as long as the dog needs it. That’s just what they do as she is part of their community.
Many thanks to Twitter user @wydsimp for posting Gio’s TikTok video.
