Lana is an energetic two-year-old sweetie. She may be black like a lab, but she is bouncy like a terrier, follows her nose like a bloodhound, and prances on long legs like a whippet. That why we call her an “American Shelter Dog.” She came to us as a stray from Texas, enjoyed her flight to Iowa, and now enjoys car rides. A few scars indicate she may have had a rough life on the streets but she is quickly learning to enjoy the good life with people. In her foster home, Lana is becoming more reliable with her house training and is learning some obedience commands. Mostly she wants to either play-wrestle with her canine friend or curl up and relax on mommy’s bed! At just 35 lbs. she is a smallish dog, with a big curiosity about the world. She is kennel-trained, walks on a leash fairly well, will run alongside a bicycle, is comfortable with strangers, kids, and other dogs. She should not go to a home with cats though. A home with lots of snuggles and perhaps some jogging and visits to the dog park for running would be great!
