A stray puppy was wandering through a neighborhood in La Porte, Texas, when she found a random house to stop and take a breather. The dog came up the driveway and looked in the front door to see if anyone was home before resting on the shaded porch. She relaxed and waited…
When the family saw the dog outside, they provided her with food and water. They called the rescue group This Is Houston for help, and as the next several hours passed, the pup just kept napping on the porch.
Kourtney Crenshaw was tagged by This Is Houston on Facebook, and when the rescuer saw Lila’s photo, she knew she had to help right away. This dog couldn’t spend another night alone on the street.
When Kourtney arrived to the house, Lila was happy to see her but a little hesitant at first.
“She must have been ready to be rescued,” she told The Dodo. “Because although she was scared, it was very easy to gain her trust and get her to safety.”
Lila was taken to a vet where it was determined she’s a 5 or 6-month-old Australian Shepherd! She was treated for her mange with antibiotics and medicated baths. She’s now living in a comfortable home and being fed proper meals for the first time ever, and the dog is quickly learning how to be a pet!
Kourtney is hoping for a quick recovery so that she can start looking for Lila’s forever home. “Once she is feeling better and a little more decompressed she will be up for adoption,” she said.
Lila sure did pick out the right porch that day. 🙂
