Sometimes, everything just breaks.
This photo was taken moments after Lana's family returned her to a boarding kennel — a place that she knew all too well.
A dog was so heartbroken after being returned to an animal shelter by her family that she ‘shut down’ and refused to go on walks.
She was kept in a foster program, spending short amounts of time with different families with no problems reported. She was five before she was placed with one permanently but they returned her after her guarding issues resurfaced. And a picture taken of Lana moments after she was handed back to the rescue home shows a brokenhearted dog, with her head hanging low and her face pressed against the wall.
But she added that the only time her guarding instincts, stemming from when she was forced to compete for food with her siblings, have only reappeared that one time. 'She snapped at the mom. And they decided because they have kids in the house to bring her back to boarding.'
Although she is still looking for a 'forever' home, Lana's story has a happy ending as she has found herself a new foster home.
Pets cant speak but they have strong feelings for their master.
