Lana was found wandering around a garbage dump site looking for food. Her rescuers saw her eating out of a plastic bag, thinking maybe Lana found some food inside. However, upon closer inspection, they saw that Lana was actually eating the plastic bag as food!!! Lana was very skinny and was starving at the time, and broke the rescuers’ hearts. They were able to take her that day. One the next day, the rescuers went back to look for her and to rescue her, they could not find her. The people who lived close by said that Lana was taken away by animal control. The rescuers went to the shelter and found Lana deathly afraid and could not stop shaking out of fear. Unfortunately, due to the policy that all animals taken into the shelters have to stay for 12 days, they had to wait for the period to be over to get her out. They knew it must be a very difficult 12-day for Lana as shelters are scary places! Because of the period of being in an overcrowded shelter, Lana needed time to warm up to strangers. Nonetheless, she still trusts people once she adjusts to the new environment, and would give all her love! She loves to go to dog parks and to play with other dogs. She will do well in a family with other dogs, which will help her adjust faster. One great thing is Lana is very food motivated! We believe with patience and understanding, she will be a perfect family member. She is house trained and uses pee pads inside. She also knows how to do her business outside.
