Labrador Retriever / Mixed : : Female
Lani is lucky to be alive! She was found in Texas wandering in and out of traffic. Once apprehended she was found to be thin yet pregnant. She soon gave birth to her puppies and after two weeks her and her litter of eight were flown up to Colorado by a kindhearted volunteer.
Naturally, she was frightened, timid and hungry. Despite what she has been through, Lani is sweet, affectionate and gentle. She loves toys, rawhides and playing with the other dogs in her foster home. Lani was also a great mother to her puppies, who have since all been adopted into amazing forever homes.
Snuggling up on the couch or in a chair next to you makes Lani happy. If allowed, she would also enjoy sleeping with you. Obviously having been neglected and abused, Lani is wary of men and frightened by sticks, flyswatters, brooms - anything she thinks might be used to hit her. Who could be so cruel to such a sweet girl? Her response is to run and ride. She is protective of her foster mom and greets outsiders with caution. She is being treated with lots of love, kindness and patience to help her overcome her fears. Lani has shown great progress! Her foster's reward for being so caring? Big, brown, warm eyes filled with love and gratitude - as if she knows her human wants her to feel safe and happy.
Lani needs a home that will continue to show her the tenderness, love, patience, and security that she never knew while she was a pregnant stray in Texas. Does your heart and home have room for a really special lady who would be ever so thankful to become a close member of your family? If so, Lani needs you!
