The dog dubbed “the saddest dog in the world,” Lana, is once again homeless and faces being put to sleep if she can’t find a new home. According to boredpanda, a photo of a despondent Lana in her kennel became popular back in 2015. She was too upset to go for walks at the time because the family who had adopted the shelter dog had given her back. Dahlia Ayoub of Mighty Mutts said, “It’s almost like her world shut down,” in 2015.
The reason why they surrendered her back to the shelter was that Lana snapped at her human mom. The doggie’s memories of being the runt of the litter may have triggered the urge to protect her food. However, the shelter found someone who give her a second chance, and so Lana was adopted again. Up until recently, that is.
“Lana’s adoption did not work out because people want a dog they can pet and play with,” said Brenda Dobranski, founder of Rescue Dogs Match. “Lana is a silly fun girl but she is not the type of dog that will let you give belly rubs…”.
The doggie only has until May 20 before she might be put to sleep. Are you that someone who can accept Lana for the special dog that she is? Can you make ‘the world’s saddest dog’ happy again?
