A Philadelphia man who discovered an abandoned puppy tied to the rail by his front steps has already found her a new home.
Justin Hanley found the pit bull-mix next to a plastic bag with three slices of pizza and a heart-wrenching note last weekend.
‘Please take me home. I’m a girl named Diamond. We can no longer keep her in our home. Thank you.’

Hanley brought the dog into his home, but with two young children and a dog, they couldn’t keep Diamond.
‘Clearly, if somebody is feeding a dog pizza they weren’t equipped to handle a dog in the first place,’ Hanley, 34, said to The Inquirer.
Hanley posted on a Facebook group looking for someone to give Diamond a forever home.

‘Need advice/help. Somebody tied up their dog and abandoned her on my front step, with a note (attached) and a bag of pizza. Who handles abandoned/lost dogs? spca?? This is heartbreaking stuff,’ he wrote.
More than 150 responded to Hanley’s post, and about three hours later, Diamond had a new home with a member of the Facebook group.
‘Faith in humanity restored,’ Hanley wrote.
