Dog for Adoption: Lan
Lan is a dog that really, really deserves a home. She would make a perfect pet, but because she is older, people don’t adopt her. They walk straight past dogs like her — a dog that would never bite a child, a dog that gets on well with other dogs, a dog that doesn’t pull on the lead. The lists of Lan’s merits is long. If only people could see the simple joy, the calm, mature joy an older dog brings to a home. No stress, no mess, no training. Lan would make any new owner proud. Lan was owned by a homeless person who was forced to give her up. She is a traditional Shiba mix, 10 years old and weights a slight 13kg. She would fit in well with any family, even a busy one. Lan has a heart of gold and does all she can possibly do to please. Please don’t pass her by.
Update: Lan has been adopted!
