The saddest dog in the world now sits in her Toronto, Canada kennel awaiting her destiny of either a new family or euthanasia.

Rescue Dogs Match has given her until May 20 to find a forever home.

Lana the Labrador-mix returned to the shelter this year after being adopted by a family in January 2016. When Lana was being fed, she snapped at her owner — making it unsafe for the family’s children.

The dog was dubbed the “Saddest dog in the word” in October 2015 when a tear-jerking photo of her went viral.

This lead to $15,000 in donations, 4,000 applications and a short-term new home. Now, once again, Lana is looking for a forever home.

Unlike some other shelter dogs, Lana’s adoptive owners need to meet specific requirements:

  • Must live in Canada
  • Must be able to spend most of the time outside (backyard, no apartments)
  • Homes without children or other dogs will work best (possessive around food)

An ideal match would be an owner who lives on a farm with a few barnyard animals.


Lana’s details:

Name: Lana Turner

Age: 3 (birthday May 14)
Breed: Lab mix
Gender: Female
Size: Medium
Cat: NO
Dogs: NO
Kids: None

Although Lana is a sweet dog, she is not a typical dog that owners can play with. She loves to be outside and having an active lifestyle and being free to roam would be most beneficial for her.
