Update: She was rescued!!
A beautiful young Rottweiler’s life may be tragically ended tomorrow unless a rescue steps up. Dana is only two years old, but she was surrendered to the shelter by her owner. According to a volunteer, her owner requested that Dana be killed, but the shelter declined to kill her. They have asked for a rescue to step up and save Dana. However, they will not keep her very long if there is no rescue. She may only have tonight and tomorrow to find rescue before the shelter kills her.
Dana walks nicely on a leash. A volunteer petted her and she was very responsive and sweet. Dana was calm and did not react to other dogs when walking through the kennel. Watch her in this video — note her tail wag, wag, wagging. She’s adorable!
Her medical notes from the shelter indicate they think she might have kidney problems. That’s unusual in a dog as young as Dana. The notes say that she needs rescue so she can be diagnosed and treated.
