From Fox32 in Chicago:
Lana, a 3-year old yellow Lab, gained fame as the Saddest Dog in the World when a picture of her in her kennel was widely circulated in 2015. She was adopted after that, but was returned to the shelter less than a year later when she snapped at her adoptive mom. She’s now on a short list for euthanasia due to over-crowding at the shelter and has until May 20th to be pulled from the shelter.
Shelter workers describe Lana as “silly and fun”, but not overly affectionate. They are looking for a home where someone has the time to work with her and restore her confidence. She is probably not appropriate for a home with young children due to her history of snapping at someone.
The rescue organization Rescue Dogs Match is willing to consider applications from across Canada and the US. If you are interested in fostering or rescuing Lana, you can contact them at [email protected]
I should probably tell you at this point that I have asked to bring Lana to Ohio to live in my home, but I haven’t heard back yet.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
