This family with young kids adopted a Labrador. But when the dog did this, they reacted immediately!

“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 to and sleep in bed with. She loves to have a job,” she continued.

Lana has a very independent character. And after everything she’s been through it’s completely understandable that she doesn’t easily trust people straight away.

But space became an issue at the shelter and an announcement was published to say that if no one came forward to take Lana in, she would have to be put down.

Pictures of Lana and her story went viral on the social networks.

Fortunately, someone finally offered to adopt Lana. She found a home once more. Let’s hope that this time it will be a lasting home!

It’s really wonderful that social networks helped connect a dog like Lana with a family. It’s important to remember that animals, even domestic ones, aren’t simply play objects for us humans. They are individual beings with their own personalities, traumas, worries and fears. Just like us, some of them need to be guided back to happiness and well-being. Let’s be responsible with the animals we adopt — they aren’t just toys!
