Subject: Rottie mix needs your help at Missouri City Animal Shelter
Lana really needs help ASAP!!!! She is a female rottie mix (I am pretty sure she is not pure bred because her nose doesn't look rottweiler-y to me but I could be wrong). This poor girl is so sweet but she has not been treated well.  She was covered with fleas and has some dermatitis (possibly mange?) and some sores on her back. She is very submissive and shy. She came in with a German Shepherd that was in just as bad a shape, but the German Shepherd rescue has taken him so she is all alone and missing her best friend.  She is sort of depressed and withdrawn now. I think with some TLC she will be beautiful and a good dog because she is very good natured.  I have attached some photos.

Can you help Lana or do you know where I can turn for help?  I hate to see a dog euthanized for perfectly treatable problems -- but I'm sure you know that no one from the public is going to adopt a dog that needs a month of special care before she can be at her best. 

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
