Some commenters have noted that Subway Sally looks too clean to be a stray — suggesting that she has a home, but sneaks out for treats on the side. In a follow-up video, Kxnuko denies these theories, explaining that the community looks after her. Sally's glossy coat is thanks to a woman who runs the nearby flower shop, who will occasionally give the pup baths.
But Sally's life on the streets of Portales, New Mexico, is still a difficult one. Since Kxnuko started working at that Subway location, he says he has witnessed Sally have four litters.
