Charlie searches for an owner but people, for some reason, turn him down. Charlie then hitches a ride in a pet shop truck. He arrives in Porky's hotel room but Porky promptly kicks him out. Porky calls the pet shop owner saying “I ordered a canary, not a monster!”
Charlie tries to be friends when Porky once kicks him out. Porky pretends to be friends and "makes Charlie a dog coat", which sends him to Siberia, laughing an evil chuckle, but Charlie ends up coming back kicking Porky in the rear while doing the Siberian Steps (See below). Meanwhile, Charlie looks through a stereoscope. Porky yells, waking the downstairs neighbor. He calls Charlie, who threatens him. The man comes upstairs and beats up poor Porky.
Porky once again kicks the dog in the hall. Charlie pretends to be a baby and a woman (see “Censorship”) to fool Porky but loses. He then says the dog can stay. Charlie is ready to leave, but Porky maniacally laughs and wants him to stay. Porky is then sleeping on the rug, and the dog tries to escape which causes him to act like a bulldog (looked similar to Hector) forcing Charlie to be his owner.

- The entire sequence where Charlie Dog poses as an abandoned baby at Porky's doorstep, Porky kicking the basket with Charlie Dog away, and Charlie Dog entering the apartment as an old woman who beats Porky with an umbrella for the despicable thing he's done was cut, making it look like that Porky was thrown out of the apartment (off-screen) when throwing Charlie Dog out.
- The scene of Charlie preparing to jump out of the apartment window was shortened to delete some of his dialogue bluntly alluding to suicide. ("I shall end it all by throwing myself off into a eternity." and "Farewell, friend." were cut, though the actual action wasn't cut, possibly because it's revealed that Charlie landed on an impossibly tall tower of mattresses)
- On The Bugs Bunny Show, the title was changed to "The Awful Orphan".
